Quality Standards 3.3                   Students Quality

Quality Standards Type                Outcome

Description

          Instructors responsible for the curriculum/program of study must manage the curriculum according to the system and mechanism for student admission and student promotion and  student development to produce empirical results that can be seen from  student graduation within  scheduled time and students  works development.

          The graduation of students  results  from  student development activities, curriculum or advisors counseling,  students complaints or suggestions handling  cause  students satisfaction to curriculum,  student retention and dropout rate,  and graduation rate.

          Student works resulting  from  student development,  student activities,  learning opportunities creation and the development of students’ potential can effects  students  works that show student learning outcomes according to higher education standards : namely  learner person, co-creator and active citizen.

          Curriculum management performance that showed the quality of students will be based on student works and student graduation rate.

Assessment Criteria for Indicator 3.3

        Average score for indicator 3.3 is from the average score of 2 sub-indicators: 3.3.1 the student works and 3.3.2 student graduation rate. The average is a score between 0 – 5.

 

          3.3.1 Student Productivity (Work Pieces)(60% = 5 marks)

          Description

            Student works/productivities result from the empirical student development that showed learners outcomes according to higher education standards, namely Learner Person, Co-Creator and Active Citizen.

          Curriculum management performance that can reflect the quality of student will be considered from percentage of student works which Learner Person, Co-Creator and Active Citizen are shown in their works.

          Assessment Criteria  

Convert the percentage of student works per total number of students in the curriculum graduates into a score of between 0 – 5;

define score 5 = 60% or higher.

Formula for Calculations

1. Calculate the percentage of the student works per total number of students in the curriculum.

     Percentage of student works = (Amount number of student works in that assessed academic year / Total Number of students in the curriculum) x 100

2. Convert the percentage calculated in item 1 to a comparable score on a 5-point scale: Score = (Percentage of student works / 60) x 5

     Notes

     1) Every students works in the curriculum that can be counted in that academic year must demonstrate Learner outcomes characteristics: Learner Person, Co-Creator, and Active Citizen.

     2) The number of students in the curriculum used for calculation is the number that reports in the Self-Assessment Report, except death case and relocating the workplace of graduate students.

     3) More than one student can work together to produce one work, depending on difficulty of that work and student year level.

     4) Students works may demonstrate either any Learner Outcomes characteristics or many characteristic of Learner Outcomes: Learner Person, Co-Creator, and Active Citizen.

The student productivity is mainly based on the performance of the students under 3 criteria (Learner Person, Co-creator & Active Citizen) 

3.3.2 Graduation Rate (60% = 5 marks)

     Description

            Student graduation result from the quality of student counseling, student supporting, students complained or suggesting  handling.  These quality services offer to students lead to student good satisfaction toward curriculum, good retention rate, and less risk level of student dropout.

          Curriculum management performance that can reflect the quality of management is the number of graduates who can graduate within time specified in the curriculum.

          Assessment Criteria

          Convert the percentage of graduates per total number of final year students in the curriculum into a score of between 0 – 5; define score 5 = 60% or higher.       

          Formula for Calculations

1. Calculate the percentage of the graduates per total number of final year students in the curriculum.

Percentage of graduates = (Number of graduates / Total Number of final year students in the curriculum) x 100

2. Convert the percentage calculated in item 1 to a comparable score on a 5-point scale: Score = (Percentage of graduates / 60) x 5

          Notes

          1) Number of students who have graduated calculated from the number of students who completed their studies according to the time specified in the curriculum.

          2) Number of final year students in the curriculum calculated from the number of final year students at that academic year according to the self-assessment report. Except death and relocating the workplace of graduate students.

3.3.1 Student Productivity    

1.3.1      Student Productivity  (Amount of Work)

The students have produced the following (see 3.3.1.1):

  1. Internship 1 Report (5)
  2. Internship 2 Report (5)
  3. Narrative Report of their Teaching Experiences in Practicum I (8)
  4. Narrative Report of their Teaching Experiences in Practicum II (8)
  5. Narrative Report of their Seminar in Education Class (1)
  6. Narrative Report of their Math Camp Activities (1)
  7. Math Project (Teaching for a Cause) (2)
  8. Student Research Output (2)
  9. Certificate of Attendance for Teacher Production Seminar (2) 
  10. Programming Packages Innovations in Teaching (11)
  11. Teaching Demonstration (8)
  12. Math Modelling (5)

Percentage: (58/31) x 100 = 187.097

Score: (187.097/60) x 5 = 15.59 = equivalent to 5 marks

Students’ Satisfaction and Complaints

The students’ satisfaction was assessed based on library, educational facility, safety, advisor, information, academic activities, physical environment, etc. A new improved Learning Community Center is also being installed for the use of Education  students (3.3.1.14)

After every year, the faculty also administers Students Satisfaction Survey. The average satisfaction levels of BEd students on 5.0 scale are the following (see 3.3.1.2):

                   * Students Satisfaction survey results

       The Faculty has created the guidelines on handling students complaints which is composed of two stages:

Stage 1:  The complaint is submitted to the responsible person (adviser, dept. head) for informal discussion through the Complain Letter Form 1. The responsible person will hold a meeting with both parties to propose a means of resolving the complaint.

Stage 2: If the student feels that the complaint was not resolved by the first stage,  a complaint should be made  in writing to the Dean’s office.

The retention of students from the year 2016 to 2019 is in increasing trend except during the academic years of 2019 – 2020 and 2020 – 2021.

Assessment:

Efforts were made to encourage high productivity rate on the part of the students. Students were able to produce their own output based on a certain criteria of a certain subject. However the college falls short in the retention of students especially the decrease of the number of students during the last academic year of 2020 – 2021 can be attributed to the effect of COVID-19 pandemic. 

Result: 

The result of students’ satisfaction survey reflects how the majority of the students are happy and satisfied with the programs implemented within the bounds of Student Productivity. However, a few of the student population have stopped attending classes for a certain reason like moving to other schools, stopped studying at all, etc which is beyond the control of the college.  

Suggestions:

More relevant student activities will be considered to encourage the students to remain and finish their schooling in St. Theresa International College.

3.3.2 Graduation Rate

………Calculation…….

1. Calculate the percentage of the graduates per total number of final year students in the curriculum.

Percentage of graduates = (Number of graduates / Total Number of final year students in the curriculum) x 100

2. Convert the percentage calculated in item 1 to a comparable score on a 5-point scale: Score = (Percentage of graduates / 60) x 5

…………………………………………………………………………

  1. Percentage of graduates = (5/5)x100 =100
  2. Score =(100/60)x5= 8.33 = 5

3.3.2 Graduation Rate

         Graduation rate is at 100% for the consecutive academic years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 (see 3.3.1.13)
