Abstract / Video
This talk presents the findings of a UGC funded collaborative project which aims to identify factors that impact on student success in the 4-year curriculum (4YC) and to use the findings to formulate and provide better support to students. A website with online resources https://learninganalytics.edu.hk/ is under development to support programme review and to conduct standardised analysis such as student entry characteristics, performance of individual students, and assessment results across the programme. The use of data-analysis techniques and student academic records will allow us to review the outcomes of a decision or action, and to target resources to enhance student learning. While student success may be defined by successful completion of a university degree, the findings of a survey conducted with 792 student, alumni and teacher respondents has suggested that students and teachers sometimes hold different opinions. In this talk, we will introduce a data-driven approach to making decisions about curriculum design and student support.
