Assessing the Value: Maths Workshop
This article by Ian Beveridge reports on a study which attempts to measure some of the benefits of the workshop for Access Numeracy Students. Mathematics Support Newsletter, Issue 2, 1994. This brief contribution from IAN BEVERIDGE (then of Luton University) is probably one of the first recorded notes which attempts to assess the effectiveness of a mathematics support centre (herein called a Workshop). It describes a workshop for access students, and its role in encouraging students to complete coursework assignments. It notes that a lower dropout rate is found in the subgroup of workshop attenders. However, it draws attentions to a perceived shortcoming which can result in creating and feeding dependency rather than independence amongst the students. The note can be found in the Mathematics Support Association Newsletter No.2 (1994) (now disbanded).
