About the seminar:
Research into the progress of Foundation Year students has identified psychometric factors that are apparently predictive of non-completion of the course (Sanders, Daly & Regan 2012).  This research seminar will explore a study which extended this research to ascertain whether these psychometric tests are also a useful diagnostic for direct entry undergraduates. Data from the study indicated that those who were not going to complete expected poorer marks than did their successful peers. Preliminary analysis suggests this finding is robust across courses. The speakers will propose that these psychometric measures could be used to identify those at risk of withdrawal, making it possible to target support appropriately to reduce attrition and thereby improve retention.
