Bucks New University
Image of Bucks New University logoOur vision at Bucks New University is to be a university that makes a significant social and economic contribution to the local region, while building a national reputation for our work and achieving international recognition for our specialist areas of expertise.

As the only publicly-funded higher education institution in Buckinghamshire, we’re proud to provide quality, inclusive and relevant higher education that develops and builds the potential of individuals and organisations alike. Within a caring and supportive environment, we deliver high-quality scholarship, as well as focused research and professional practice.

  • Assessed 374 students 30 at a time over three days at two campuses. Another 100 tested later in term
  • Previously using nothing standardised bar some in house paper based initial assessments but much better to have the student's tested online
  • We found the SAS to be rapid and useful and were impressed by the consistency of results over time
  • Group reports are good for group tutors to see the spread of ability at a glance
  • Individual reports form a good basis for initial planning conversations with students. Students are surprised and usually impressed by the detail and accuracy in them. We use them in conjunction with learning styles questionnaires
  • Course tutors receive group reports and results are analysed and presented to senior management. At risk students are identified and learning development then works with them. The brightest students are identified and their attendance and progress monitored. Any puzzling results may mean students are referred on, e.g. for dyslexia screening
