NCEA Analysis: How it Works● We compare the VC results with the face to face results of each student● Each ROL is examined and a numerical value given to a course ○ 1 = best result, ○ 2 = typical result, ○ 3 = worst result● These our counted up at the end and converted to percentage figures
In 2009, one very poor course (change of teacher half way through) distorted results
Last year we had TWO courses with very poor results (almost all Ns in externals). Mostof these students did fine in their face to face class so once again they have impacted onthe data here. We had TWO other courses where results were weak. The other courses were all strong.
SummaryGenerally speaking, students do just as well or better thanface to face when studying online. When we have issueswith results it generally comes down to a specific course orcourses.The solution is to provide support to teachers on a needsbasis and make sure individual course results improve.
