Making Sense: 2009 - results

Thirteen pre-final year students participated in the
project. Exceptionally one student's ratings had
decreased, showing a lower level of open-
mindedness, ability to work collaboratively and to
operate professionally. This student's self-perceptions
had clearly been challenged by the project.

O
ne student had unchanged ratings (all quite high to
begin with), and two others had ratings that overall
had increased minimally. The remaining nine students demonstrated a clear increase in all six levels/
abilities, with one student showing marked increases
in levels/abilities in every dimension - except
open-mindedness (rated a 5).

In terms of the Making Sense research
programme's mission, it was satisfying to see that
in general there were significant increases (i.e. 25%
plus) in confidence, creativity, and critical
ability levels.
