Researchers Assess Student Performance in Mathematics, Physics, and Critical Thinking

Researchers Assess Student Performance in Mathematics, Physics, and Critical Thinking
A group of researchers representing four countries summed up the results of the Supertest, a large-scale study of the academic performance of engineering students in Russia, China, India, and the United States. It is the first study to track the progress of students in computer science and electrical engineering over the course of their studies with regard to their abilities in physics, mathematics, and critical thinking and compare the results among four countries. The article about study was published in Nature Human Behavior.

Children's Adaptation to Online Learning Depends on the Nature of Their Parents’ Work

Children's Adaptation to Online Learning Depends on the Nature of Their Parents’ Work
Specialists at the HSE Institute of Education found that the willingness of children to work independently at home during distance learning depended not only on the availability of appropriate technical means in the family (its socio-economic profile), but also on the nature of their parents’ work (a socio-psychological factor).

How Academic Dishonesty Seeps into the Workplace

How Academic Dishonesty Seeps into the Workplace
How does academic dishonesty of students correlate with honesty in further work? A group of scientists, including Evgenia Shmeleva, Research Fellow at the HSE Institute of Education, conducted research answering this question. During an open online seminar of a research group dedicated to ‘Academic Ethics in the Educational Context,’ Evgenia Shmeleva presented ‘Does Academic Dishonesty Seep into the Workplace? Evidence from a Longitudinal Study,’ which was prepared jointly with Igor Chirikov (University of California at Berkeley-HSE University) and Prashant Loyalka (Stanford University-HSE University)

New Issue of ‘Higher Education in Russia & Beyond’ Explores Global Perspectives in Doctoral Training

New Issue of ‘Higher Education in Russia & Beyond’ Explores Global Perspectives in Doctoral Training
The latest issue of ‘Higher Education in Russia & Beyond,’ an international journal published quarterly by HSE and the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College (USA), IOE’s long-standing partner for a diverse research agenda, looks at how doctoral education has been evolving in different nations and over various timeframes. A brief by IOE experts Saule Bekova and Ivan Smirnov gives a glimpse of key factors that have been reshaping the sentiment towards doctoral studies in Russia. In his contribution, Evgeny Terentev of the IOE Center for Sociology of Higher Education discusses the main sources of academic support to PhD candidates at Russian universities.

Building on Shallow Grounds: What Precludes Students from Making It to University Hooding

Building on Shallow Grounds: What Precludes Students from Making It to University Hooding
IOE experts Evgeniia Shmeleva and Isak Froumin have recently come up with a paper that analyzes factors that are primarily responsible for undergraduate churn in programs of computer science and engineering education. The research draws upon a massive sample of more than 4,000 STEM students at 34 universities across Russia. Using this study as the starting point, we have set out to further elaborate on the topic, with student attrition representing an ever-pressing challenge for the global university realm. It turns out there is a particularly strong link between the amount of academic capital one was able to build up by school completion (as expressed by the score on the K–11 Unified State Exam) and one’s odds of successfully making it through the university coursework.
