ADM-HEA ANNOUNCEMENTS


National Student Survey (NSS) Project

There has been much media speculation and discussion within art and design at the level of individual HEIs, regarding the reasons for art and design appearing towards the bottom of the NSS outcomes tables. There has not, to date, been any national research to support art and design subjects and its deliverers in the analysis of the actual NSS data, nor in reviewing the activities by HEIs in relation to the NSS and the success or otherwise of such actions. This project aims to begin the task of addressing this shortfall.
