A Pilot for a Shared On-line Statistics Advisory Service
To assess the practical and pedagogical issues involved in providing an appointments-based Statistics Advisory Service via an on-line learning space.
To assess the potential demand for such a service.
To pilot and evaluate a scheme whereby HE institutions without a dedicated SAS can provide an appointments-based Statistics Advisory Service to final year project students and postgraduate students across STEM disciplines through an on-line service which is shared with other HE institutions.
An on-line shared Statistics Advisory Service (SAS) made available to students at the three partner institutions.
Six half-hour on-line appointments made available each week for 15 weeks, giving a total of 90 appointments during the pilot.
A report evaluating the pilot to assess the practical and pedagogical issues involved, and the potential demand for such a service. Both the shared aspect of the service and the on-line aspect of delivery will addressed.
The evaluation of the pilot could be used by HE institutions to inform their decision about whether to provide such a service in the future.
