Student digital experience tracker 2016
Results from the pilot project -Tabetha Newman and Helen Beetham
13/06/2016
Executive summary
» Jisc developed a set of 11 questions, designed to provide a snapshot of students' digital
experience while engaged in a course of study
» In February-April 2016 Jisc delivered two versions of the questions (HE, and FE and skills)
as a pilot tracker service for institutions
» The questions were delivered in BOS and piloted across 24 institutions (12 HE and 12 FE
and skills, the latter including two specialist colleges)
» Pilot sites were supported through the process with identical guidance to simulate a
real-world service delivery setting and to ensure equivalence of data
» A total of 10,753 students completed the tracker questions
» We have a reliable snapshot of the situation with respect to device ownership and use,
access to digital services, typical digital activities on course, and how students rate
different aspects of their digital experience
» The data reveal significant differences between students in HE and in FE and skills

Development of the tracker
» A series of consultations carried out by Jisc during
2014-2015 found a demand for a better understanding
of students' digital experiences and expectations
» The tracker questions were based on research by the
Jisc Digital student project including studies of
students in HE, FE and skills
» A live consultation workshop with staff and students
refined the proposed questions from 36 to 12
» Cognitive interviewing with FE and HE students, and
early beta testing further refined the questions
for piloting
13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 6
Implementation of the tracker
» The survey was implemented in BOS onlinesurveys.ac.uk,
a system developed for UK HE and FE and already in use
at many of the pilot sites
» 50+ education providers applied to take part in the pilot:
24 were chosen based on a spread of institutional sizes,
types and locations
» Pilot sites were required to engage stakeholders and
explore their reasons for taking part in the pilot
» Pilot sites were responsible for customising the survey,
releasing it to learners, engaging learners to complete it,
and analysing their own data
13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 7
Implementation of the tracker
» Six separate guides were produced to support the
pilot process and to ensure parity of the data collected
» Sites had only the guides and collective email/blog
postings for support, to reproduce service
delivery conditions
» The project negotiated for benchmarking data to be
made available to pilot sites within the BOS system
13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 8
Evaluation of the tracker
» Synthesis data has undergone preliminary analysis (this report)
» Further analysis is planned by this and other teams within Jisc
» Each pilot site is supported to analyse, understand and respond to its own data, with the
involvement of key stakeholders
» Standardised feedback about the pilot process has been collected from the lead contact at
all 24 pilot sites
» The experience of six contrasting sites is being explored in more detail, including feedback
from learners and other stakeholders
13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 9
Sample sizes and response rates
» A total of 10,753 students across the 24 pilot institutions answered at least one question in
theTracker: a median average of 245 responses per institution
» 7,425 students from twelve HE and 3,328 students from twelve FE and skills institutions
completed the tracker (an average of 285 responses per HE institution, and 219 per FE
institution)
» The maximum number of responses from one institution was 3,592 (from a university with
about 20,000 students); the minimum number of responses was 25 (from a specialist
college with about 40 students)
» Questions were optional, hence the exact sample size differs for every question
» A total of 11 of our 24 institutions (46%) collected over 300 responses, and 19 (79%)
collected at least 100 responses from students
13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 10
Analysis and statistics
» Data is presented graphically where possible, usually as percentages of students choosing
each option
» Where a “don’t know” option was available, this data is usually included unless:
› HE student data is compared to FE and skills student data where possible
› Comparisons between proportions (eg between FE and skills versus HE students) were
carried out using a ZTest calculator set at a 99.9% confidence level (higher than the
minimum level of 95% in order to reflect the number of times that comparisons were
run with this data set)
» The magnify glass (see below right) is positioned at the bottom right of pages where a
particularly interesting result has been found

Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016

  • 1. Student digital experience tracker 2016 Results from the pilot project -Tabetha Newman and Helen Beetham 13/06/2016
  • 2. Executive summary » Jisc developed a set of 11 questions, designed to provide a snapshot of students' digital experience while engaged in a course of study » In February-April 2016 Jisc delivered two versions of the questions (HE, and FE and skills) as a pilot tracker service for institutions » The questions were delivered in BOS and piloted across 24 institutions (12 HE and 12 FE and skills, the latter including two specialist colleges) » Pilot sites were supported through the process with identical guidance to simulate a real-world service delivery setting and to ensure equivalence of data » A total of 10,753 students completed the tracker questions » We have a reliable snapshot of the situation with respect to device ownership and use, access to digital services, typical digital activities on course, and how students rate different aspects of their digital experience » The data reveal significant differences between students in HE and in FE and skills 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 3
  • 3. Contents » Introduction » Devices used to support student’s learning » Access to institutional digital resources » Digital skills within the course experience » Institutional digital guidance and support » Student digital experience » Digital technologies in learning: what students want to start, stop and keep 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 4
  • 4. Introduction 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 5
  • 5. Development of the tracker » A series of consultations carried out by Jisc during 2014-2015 found a demand for a better understanding of students' digital experiences and expectations » The tracker questions were based on research by the Jisc Digital student project including studies of students in HE, FE and skills » A live consultation workshop with staff and students refined the proposed questions from 36 to 12 » Cognitive interviewing with FE and HE students, and early beta testing further refined the questions for piloting 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 6
  • 6. Implementation of the tracker » The survey was implemented in BOS onlinesurveys.ac.uk, a system developed for UK HE and FE and already in use at many of the pilot sites » 50+ education providers applied to take part in the pilot: 24 were chosen based on a spread of institutional sizes, types and locations » Pilot sites were required to engage stakeholders and explore their reasons for taking part in the pilot » Pilot sites were responsible for customising the survey, releasing it to learners, engaging learners to complete it, and analysing their own data 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 7
  • 7. Implementation of the tracker » Six separate guides were produced to support the pilot process and to ensure parity of the data collected » Sites had only the guides and collective email/blog postings for support, to reproduce service delivery conditions » The project negotiated for benchmarking data to be made available to pilot sites within the BOS system 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 8
  • 8. Evaluation of the tracker » Synthesis data has undergone preliminary analysis (this report) » Further analysis is planned by this and other teams within Jisc » Each pilot site is supported to analyse, understand and respond to its own data, with the involvement of key stakeholders » Standardised feedback about the pilot process has been collected from the lead contact at all 24 pilot sites » The experience of six contrasting sites is being explored in more detail, including feedback from learners and other stakeholders 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 9
  • 9. Sample sizes and response rates » A total of 10,753 students across the 24 pilot institutions answered at least one question in theTracker: a median average of 245 responses per institution » 7,425 students from twelve HE and 3,328 students from twelve FE and skills institutions completed the tracker (an average of 285 responses per HE institution, and 219 per FE institution) » The maximum number of responses from one institution was 3,592 (from a university with about 20,000 students); the minimum number of responses was 25 (from a specialist college with about 40 students) » Questions were optional, hence the exact sample size differs for every question » A total of 11 of our 24 institutions (46%) collected over 300 responses, and 19 (79%) collected at least 100 responses from students 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 10
  • 10. Analysis and statistics » Data is presented graphically where possible, usually as percentages of students choosing each option » Where a “don’t know” option was available, this data is usually included unless: › HE student data is compared to FE and skills student data where possible › Comparisons between proportions (eg between FE and skills versus HE students) were carried out using a ZTest calculator set at a 99.9% confidence level (higher than the minimum level of 95% in order to reflect the number of times that comparisons were run with this data set) » The magnify glass (see below right) is positioned at the bottom right of pages where a particularly interesting result has been found 13/06/2016 Student digital experience tracker pilot results 2016 11

Editor's Notes

  1. Removed “don’t know” for Q3 because this is not a relevant option to show an audience. Instead more important to see the difference in the number of people who chose YES and not NO
  2. Personal: FE and S students use more desktops, HE use more laptops Note: at present Z tests are all significant at 0.05 (because of huge sample size) so need to counter for repeat testing of data set so changed to 0.001 (99.9 confidence level) via online calc below and have used this. Need to double check in SPSS https://www.mccallum-layton.co.uk/tools/statistic-calculators/z-test-for-proportions-independent-groups-calculator/#z-test-for-proportions-independent-groups-calculator

  5. Removed “don’t know” for Q3 because this is not a relevant option to show an audience. Instead more important to see the difference in the number of people who chose YES and not NO
  6. Suggest we consider removing this in the revised Tracker
  7. Large disparity between HE and FE&S in terms of % choosing “don’t know” option. So checked by removing the don’t know, and this result still stands
  8. Removed “don’t know” for Q3 because this is not a relevant option to show an audience. Instead more important to see the difference in the number of people who chose YES and not NO

  11. Removed “don’t know” for Q3 because this is not a relevant option to show an audience. Instead more important to see the difference in the number of people who chose YES and not NO
  12. Removed don’t know here, as the proportion of those who don’t know isn’t of interest. It’s between 4% (FE students, teaching staff) and 19% (FE students, support staff question) of student answers per question.
