Logan, Joanna, Quinn, Carole, Lane, Murray C., & Kays, Nicholas (2016) Measuring engagement of students who are experiencing significant academic challenges. In American Library Association (ALA) Conference, 23-28 June 2016, Orlando, FL. (Unpublished)


Student engagement and retention is a key strategic priority for QUT. The Library’s Academic Skills Adviser consultation service provides support for students experiencing significant academic challenges. Our project aimed to bring together data to investigate engagement by students referred from the Student Success Program. A dashboard was created with referral and attendance data, Grade Point Average and Blackboard (Learning Management System) hits.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
