Criteria for the selection of students at a nursing college

Nizamdin, Monera 08 May 2014 (has links)
M.Cur. (Professional Nursing) / The selection of student nurses is a major factor determining the standard of nursing education, of the nursing profession and the quality of health care provided to the community in which the nurse serves. Student nurses gain entry into the nursing profession through a selection system. These systems vary from country to country and even among universities and nursing colleges within the country. According to available research literature the most common criteria identified involve biographical, psychological and academic variables which most universities and nursing college utilise to select students. A survey was undertaken to identify these variables and subsequently criteria were drafted for the selection of students at a college in the Transvaal. From this survey certain biographical variables were identified that could not be utilised as selection criteria, since it could be seen as being biased and constituting a violation of the rights of the individual. The psychological variables identified could also not be utilised as this aspect was beyond the scope of this study. The only usable discriminant was the academic variable where certain subjects and grades were highlighted in selecting students. The Swedish rating scale was used to draft a formula as follows: • A candidate has to possess a matriculation/standard ten certificate with six subjects; • A mark is allocated to each subject and symbol; • These marks are added together. Extra weighting of the same mark would be added to the subject discriminants, namely English higher grade; Biology higher grade; Mathematics standard and higher grades; Physical Science standard and higher grades. These marks would be added together and a candidate would be selected if he/she had a mark of 35 or above.

A comparison of students' responses to automated and manual computer literacy assessments.

Pillay, Chantal. January 2009 (has links)
The aim of this research was to determine the differences in student responses of two forms of assessment, automated and manual in terms of measuring student capability in the computer literacy programme, The International Computer Drivers Licence. Computer Literacy studies are an integral part of many academic programmes and have become a basic requirement for securing certain employment. Many academic programmes utilise recognised computer literacy qualifications rather than developing their own. In this case study, assessment within one of the most prestigious programmes, the International Computer Drivers Licence (ICDL), is the focus of attention. This qualification has become a benchmark for such computer literacy certification. Formal assessments are conducted to complete the certification. The certifying body, The ICDL Foundation, that controls this qualification, allows institutions to select from two modes of assessments. The modes of assessment are paper- based ‘manual’ (traditional) assessments or approved automated assessment software that is commercially available through different software suppliers. Manual assessments are available from the ICDL Foundation and conducted by external examiners, whilst the automated assessments are designed by software companies and approved by the ICDL Foundation. This case study looks at a comparison between students’ responses of the automated assessments that uses simulation of major software packages such as Microsoft Word and Excel and a manual assessment. The focus of this study was to gain some insight into students’ experience when taking the automated assessment and how it compares to a manual assessment. A case study was conducted in which a group of volunteer students were requested to take two assessments on a particular section of computer literacy. The first assessment was the automated assessment followed by a manual assessment which assessed the same outcomes as the automated assessment. During these assessments certain phenomena were observed and recorded. These observations were then qualitatively analysed and organised into themes. Scores of these two assessments were also compared to establish if the students showed marked differences between the two assessments. However the small sample size means that no conclusions could be made based on statistical differences. Immediately after the two different forms of assessment, six of the students were interviewed. These interviews were conducted using semi-structured questions. The questions revolved around the students’ perceptions of their responses to the automated and manual assessments and in particular how the students perceived both assessments. The transcriptions of these interviews were then qualitatively analysed and common themes were extrapolated. The results of the study show that students’ abilities were not always being assessed accurately in the automated assessment. The data in this study also shows that the automated assessment, whilst highly reliable and objective, does not present an authentic assessment environment. This resulted in high scores being awarded where students were not able to perform the same tasks successfully in the manual assessment. This calls into question the validity of the automated assessment and its ability to assess students’ practical skills accurately. The interview data also suggests that the use of multiple choice questions and discrete tasks in the automated assessment further resulted in students adopting a surface approach to learning in their preparation for this summative assessment.ses / Thesis (M.Ed.) - University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, 2009.

Die verband tussen matrieksimbole en eerstejaarprestasie in Lettere en Wysbegeerte

21 October 2015 (has links)
M.Ed. (Tertiary Didactics) / In the Republic of South Africa (RSA) the high failure rate among first-year students, in particular, and the fact that more and more students are streaming to the universities, have dramatically increased the cost of a university education. The failure of a first-year student is a financial burden that the universities cannot afford. A first-year student who has failed has a negative attitude towards further study at any tertiary institution, leading to the loss to our country of the manpower we need for technological advancement. ..

Portfolios as developmentally appropriate assessment in early childhood education

Thompson, Deborah 01 January 1991 (has links)
Traditional use of formal assessment techniques in early childhood education is not congruent with the knowledge and philosophies that have begun to guide curriculum and practice. The discontent with current assessment approaches has created a need to develop alternate assessment methods. The practice of portfolio assessment is posed as a developmentally appropriate alternative in this thesis. Current literature on portfolio assessment related to kindergarten/first grade setting supports portfolio assessment in both theory and practice in early childhood education.
