The Effect of the Covid-19 Lockdown on Results

Andy Burkert and Mark Harmer

 

 

 

 

 

Anecdotal evidence suggested that the Covid-19 lockdown resulted in poorer completion and pass rates in DE4101 Engineering Fundamentals.

This assumption has been analysed by comparing results from 2020 to those from 2015-2019.

Only Semester 1 results have been used as the students taking the course in Semester 2 are part-time or repeating students and student numbers are much reduced.
