Seminar: Elle Yuan Wang – ASU EdPlus Action Lab

Exploring Non-Cognitive Reasons behind Success after Failure The availability of large-scale online courses enabled assessment of academic performances at scale. Equally important is the opportunity to investigate the state of non-cognitive or soft skills of online learners to inform design of interventions to improve learning outcomes. The present analysis looked learners who successfully passed the course, either passed at their first attempts or passed after failed attempts, and compared how ...

Congratulations Leonie Payne! How does bias impact student evaluations of teaching?

The goal of Leonie Payne’s PhD thesis — “Bringing Rigour to the Evaluation of Higher Education” — is to provide a sounder theoretical and statistical foundation for the analysis of student evaluations of teaching, gathered the world-over from student surveys. She’s developing a mathematical and conceptual model of bias that will assist those designing and analysing surveys to understand where and how bias may creep into the survey methodology used. Leonie has demonstrated how Monte Carlo resampl...

A Brief Introduction to Telling Stories with Data

John Naisbitt said: "We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge". This quote is getting increasingly relevant nowadays when we are literally surrounded by data in our everyday lives. Interpreting and communicating data insights is becoming quite critical in all kind of industries. However, finding the story behind the data and communicating it effectively, is significantly harder than just crunching numbers and plotting data points. This seminar is a brief introduction to how to...
