student learning projects (2008 - ongoing)
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.
One 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.
