Research into the 'Nominal = Normal' pilot at Erasmus University Rotterdam
Client: CvB EUR
The EUR attaches great importance to improving the study progression of students. To achieve this it conducted an extensive pilot project on the Nominal = Normal scheme. This scheme encompassed four measures:
- Introduction of a form of activating learning;
- Restriction on the number of re-sits;
- Introduction of a form of compensatory testing.
- Introduction of a BSA standard of 60 ECTS in the first academic year.
Commissioned by the Executive Board of Erasmus University Rotterdam, Risbo conducted research into the extensive pilot for the Nominal = Normal scheme at Erasmus University Rotterdam. This research concentrated on two questions: What is the possible influence of the Nominal = Normal scheme on the influx of students into the programmes which introduced N=N this academic year? What is the influence of the Nominal = Normal scheme on BSA yields of the programmes which introduced N=N this academic year?
