SEC Faculty MRes Scholarship awarded to CSM academic to study cohort attainment

Congratulations to Dr Mastaneh Davis who has been awarded a SEC Faculty MRes Scholarship to supervise a project titled: A Quantitative Investigation into “Attainment Gaps” within the SEC Undergraduate Student Cohorts at Kingston University

This project aims to investigate the progress of Science, Engineering and Computing (SEC) students from one level to another, to identify relationships between student performances at different levels within the same subject area and study individual variation from the trends for each subject.  The project will consider variety of parameters, including how factors such as students’ ethnicity, gender socio-economic background and age affect their performance and progression. The outcomes of this work may be used to inform novel teaching and learning strategies to achieve improvements for the benefit of all students.
