Graduate admission has become critical for quality assurance. An innovative solution is needed to achieve efficiency and consistency in the admission process at institutions.

Wong, Billy; Chiu, Yuan-Li Tiffany – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Research on the 'ideal' or 'good' student tends to be situated within compulsory schooling.

Rosman, Tom; Mayer, Anne-Kathrin; Leichner, Nikolas; Krampen, Günter – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The transition to higher education is a topic of concern for educators around the world. In fact, the shift to a more competitive educational environment can negatively impact students' academic self-concept, which, in turn, might lead to lower persistence and less adaptive educational decisions. To examine how psychology students adapt to the…

Thornton, Claire; Miller, Phillip; Perry, Kelly – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Higher education institutions (HEIs) are increasingly being measured using key performance indicators (KPIs) such as student retention, success, achievement and attendance.

Eveland, Thomas J. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Although the growing attendance of first-generation college students attests to higher education's commitment to access and social mobility, by many measures students who are the first in their family to attend college are not as successful as their later-generation peers. The increasing number of first-generation students and the social,…
