Projects

Algorithmic relationship between student wellbeing and academic performance (2017)$2,000
Description
This project will analyse data on student wellbeing and its relationship to their academic performance. All students completed a wellbeing survey that was delivered by the school previously; the survey captured baseline symptomologies among high school students, which provided insights into the psychological wellbeing of students. The survey was developed using three standardised psychometrics to accurately capture - developmental strengths, psychological resources, bio-behavioural aspects, environmental forces and socio-cultural influences. Understanding student wellbeing can lead to better understanding their needs and supporting needs. Such a holistic approach is hoped to improve academic performance. However, the school does not have the required skill set to fully interpret the survey results nor to statistically analyse the data derived from the survey to redesign their wellbeing practices.
