Sabrina Denicola will develop and administer an assessment tool for students’ evaluations of the three experiential learning courses to understand how post-secondary experiential educational opportunities impact students’ perceived ability to apply their discipline and develop job skills. Her project is titled, “An Evaluation of Experiential Education in the Social Sciences.”

Tianna Follwell’s project, “Needs Assessment and Service Evaluation for First Generation Students at McMaster,” focuses on the experiences of students who are the first in their families to attend university. Follwell will use quantitative methods to ask students about their university experience, as well as accessing McMaster’s support services for first-generation students. This work will evaluate supports and offer recommendations to address institutional gaps in support.

Please see the McMaster University website for more information about the Undergraduate Student Research Award program.
