Acting on findings
The finding: One-third of students’ portfolio submissions must be returned for revision due to missing elements.
|Single decision approach||Experimentation approach|
|Decision||Faculty should provide oversight of portfolio work to reduce the number of returns for revision.||Try several methods to reduce the number of returns for revision.|
|Action||Institute 3 check-points in the final year of coursework at which faculty members will review portfolios under construction and flag missing elements for attention by the student.||Design several short experiments to identify the 1/3 of the students who need prompting, rather than plan a response that involves all faculty and impacts all students.|
DiscussionGive some more thought to the scenario and finding above – what other experimental actions could you take to reduce the number of incomplete portfolio submissions?
