#RethinkingAssessment - The Office for Students (@OfficeStudents) has today (23 Jun) launched a review of the use of ‘inclusive’ assessment practices that disregard poor spelling, punctuation and grammar when students’ work is assessed.
New findings from an external evaluation of artificial intelligence (#AI) and data science postgraduate "Join Your AI Future" conversion courses funded by the Office for Students (@OfficeStudents), shows a high proportion of enrolments from women, black and disabled students.
A new report released by @officestudents: A geography of employment and earnings, presents a method for grouping areas based on measures of local graduate opportunity.
The new measure, published today, contextualises how graduate opportunities are spread across the country, capturing differences in earnings and employment status by local area. For example, it shows that:
in England, areas with highest concentration of well-paid graduates (those earning over £23,000) are London, Reading, Slough and Heathrow – where 70 per cent of graduates earn over £23,000 or are in further study three years after graduation
areas with the lowest earnings – where 52 per cent of graduates earn over £23,000 or are in high-level study – are mainly in the Midlands, and North and South-West England, with coastal towns facing particular challenges.
The new measure can also be used for comparing outcomes across different student groups, where overall earnings data can often obscure wider regional gaps. For example, while black graduates are significantly more likely to live in areas with more highly paid job opportunities, they remain less likely to enter well-paid employment compared to white graduates. Analysis shows that:
