Each year, we analyse data about student attainment and how participation in library training and use of Library resources relate to student success. We have repeatedly found a correlation between student attainment and engagement with the Library.
Across the university, 31% of 2022J students who attended a live training session gained a distinction at the end of their module. 2022J students are those who started studying a module in October 2022.
Similarly, students who access Library resources more frequently correlate to a greater number of distinctions. For all schools, students who received a distinction accessed on average more Library resources than students who passed or failed the module.
When looking at all 2022J students together, students who gained a Distinction averaged 34 resource accesses, those who attained a Pass averaged 20 resource accesses, and those who received a Fail averaged 4 resource accesses.
You will find charts detailing the data, including school-level data on Library resource accesses, in these documents below, If you have any questions, please contact us.
