Please note: The Centre for Educational Testing for Access and Placement (CETAP) changed its name in 2021 to Centre for Educational Assessments (CEA).
The DMISRS Project is a collaborative project which aims to analyse the curricula of first year Mathematics courses in Higher Education in order to establish how best to address students’ needs through curriculum-integrated support initiatives, including blended-learning.
Individual areas of need for students in identified institutions will be determined through NSC Mathematics and NBT sub-domain analysis and the kind of Mathematics support needed will be workshopped.
The project will benefit academics, institutions and students in the following ways:
- It will enable academics to leverage the diagnostic potential of the provided information in addressing the needs of their particular students.
- Individual student reports will enable academics to address the mathematical diversity in a programme rather than follow a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning.
- The information resulting from the analysis could be used by institutions as a tool for student placement and support and to establish curriculum-integrated support initiatives.
- It will enable academics to make evidence-based decisions for curriculum change to enhance student success.
- It will enhance curriculum support in Mathematics to increase student participation and success in Mathematics.
- It has the potential to change the profile of students succeeding in Mathematics.
- It will enhance the first year experience and reduce attrition.
