Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF): DMISRS Project

The aim of the project is to provide information on test performance and benchmarking for NSFAS eligible candidates who wrote the NBTs. The analysis is used to assess the entry level of candidate's academic skills in three domains of Academic Literacy (AL), Quantitative Literacy (QL) and Mathematics (MAT).

Additionally, with a focus on the blended learning initiative for DMISRS, the Connected Academic Mathematics Programme (CAMP) initiative started to take firmer shape in 2023 where the main focus became a learning platform which would help learners to identify the gaps in their Mathematics knowledge for specific university programmes and to bridge these gaps to allow for greater success at university.
