What is the Student Dashboard?
The Student Dashboard in an online resource designed to help you understand how well you are engaging with your studies. It enables you to compare yourself with other students on your course.
Where do I find it?
You can find it by logging into NOW and selecting 'Tools'.
How does it measure engagement?
The Dashboard currently calculates your engagement using the following measures:
• library use
• NOW log ins
• coursework submissions through Dropbox
• campus swipes
In 2015-16 we started displaying attendance data and e-book usage but these measures are not yet included in the calculation, this will be a future development.
What are the benefits for me?
We know that there is a positive association between high engagement and academic success. The Student Dashboard enables you to take more control of your studies. You can see your current engagement level and how you can proactively change it. Your tutor can also see your dashboard and they may use the information in the Dashboard as part of any discussions they have with you.
