In Singapore, the School of Electronics and Info-Comm Technology (SEIT) College West is implementing eDASH; an electronic diagnostic curriculum assessment framework to improve student success rate; which is accomplished through the monitoring of student progress, identification of at-risk students and corresponding response to intervention strategies.

eDASH functions on the foundation of DASH framework; whose components of Curriculum-based Assessment, Stochastic Assessment Model and Response to Intervention approach, promotes consistent review of module delivery in alignment to intended student learning outcomes and based on data-driven analytics for optimal student success rate. Early intervention strategies in eDASH such as remedial classes, peer tutoring, pedagogical strategies and counselling are important follow up actions to prevent student failure.

This innovation has led to increased retention, increased completion and improved outcomes through the implementation of new academic and administrative resources, data analytics solutions, intervention strategies and student support systems. The digitizing process has enabled curriculum assessments to be conducted in a paperless and time-efficient manner.

As student academic progress monitoring is vital to ensure optimal retention of knowledge and skills in TVET, the components of DASH or eDASH could be replicated to improve student learning outcomes and overall academic achievement at the classroom or institutional level.
