Unsatisfactory Education Experiences
In this project, we would learn more about the factors that lead to students having unsatisfactory educational experiences and/or academic outcomes. We would work together to create interview and/or survey questions on what aspects of their educational experiences led to these outcomes. We would also seek to understand what interventions or tools could be put in place to create more favorable experiences and/or academic outcomes.
Predictors of Academic Success
Numerous data sets exist related to how students from different backgrounds (racial, gender, income etc.) perform on standard metrics of academic success (test scores, graduation rates etc.). Depending on the area of interest, we would work with the data set to determine how various student characteristics can predict certain outcomes as well as how different variables interact.
