Solutions for diagnosing and improving incoming student competencies

Sungkyunkwan University Sungkyunkwan University is leading the development of higher education by implementing challenges, innovation, sharing and co-prosperity based on the 626th anniversary of history and tradition. Under the motto of Inspiring Future, Grand Challenge, it has become a symbol of a competent university leading a new era. In 2023, it was selected by the Ministry of Science and ICT’s ‘Metabus Convergence Graduate School Support Project’ and established Department of Immersive Media Engineering with the aim of fostering convergent talents with the ability to encompass all stages of planning, R&D, and commercialization of metaverse services. It operates a curriculum that combines ICT technology and humanities and social sciences necessary for the realization of metaverse services, develops and operates research and curriculum specializing in metaverse, carries out industry-academic cooperation projects with partner companies to solve current issues in industrial sites, and strives to cultivate convergence talents. Sungkyunkwan University’s Department of Immersive Media Engineering is conducting competency evaluation and education with Elice to diagnose and educate new students. I met Yoo So-hee, who works at Sungkyunkwan University’s Intelligent Multimedia Research Center, and heard about the competency evaluation and education cases in detail. Q. Hello. Please tell us a little bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on. hello. My name is Sohee Yoo, and I am in charge of planning various events and online and offline publicity for the Department of Immersive Media Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University’s Intelligent Multimedia Research Center. The Department of Immersive Media Engineering was established in the second semester of the 23rd year as a government’s Metaverse Convergence Graduate School project. As a department with a convergent nature, the existing majors of the students are also composed of a ratio of 6:4 between science and humanities. Q. You conducted competency assessment and complementary education through Elice. Why did you choose Elice and what were your expectations? Actually, I already knew Elice because I had seen an interview with the CEO of Elice before. I was also a liberal arts student, so I had already encountered Elice while looking for coding lectures. When I came to Sungkyunkwan University’s Intelligent Multimedia Research Center and heard that I needed a programming competency assessment, I immediately thought of Elice and suggested it to the professor. Of course, I also considered and compared other competitors, and in the end, I chose Elice because I thought that its competency assessment and training were systematic. Q. Who was the competency assessment conducted for and what was the goal of the competency assessment? The competency assessment is basically conducted for students who have been admitted to the Department of Immersive Media Engineering. It is an assessment to diagnose how much basic competency they have to complete the curriculum of the department. Since it is a convergence department, it basically requires competency in programming, and in fact, some students in the liberal arts have not yet been exposed to programming. After confirmation of admission, the competency assessment is conducted to diagnose the basic competency, and if it is below the standard, we provide supplementary education through Elice and aim to build competency until graduation. In fact, we consider it important enough to make passing the competency assessment a graduation requirement. Q. What is the most important thing about the competency assessment? I think the most important thing about competency assessment is the question structure that allows you to make an accurate assessment of the area you want to diagnose. Before we introduced Elice Competency Assessment, I organized the questions that my professor used to take and sent them to Elice, and Elice organized the questions at a level similar to the difficulty and question structure of those questions. Q. What did you like about Elice Competency Assessment? I was satisfied with the efficiency of the administration. It was easy and comfortable to manage from an administrative point of view, as it was seamless from question submission to scoring to training management. I also liked the fact that the administrator could supervise the test taker while viewing all three screens (webcam, monitor, and mobile screen) when taking the competency assessment. ▲ Competency Assessment Take Screen Q. What changes have you seen before and after implementing Elice Competency Assessment? Before Elice, the professors had to create the questions and manually evaluate them, which took a lot of resources. The tests were all manual, and the grading was also manual, so it took months to get the results back to the students. But after Elice Competency Assessment, we were able to quickly move from creating the questions to grading them. As an administrator, I think it was really nice to be able to see the results immediately after taking the competency assessment and get back to the students quickly. Q. Based on the results of the competency assessment, remedial education is provided for students who do not pass. What are the goals of the remedial education? The primary goal of the supplementary education is to raise the level of the students so that they can pass the competency assessment, so that they can build up their skills to the point where they can follow the curriculum of the department. Also, the characteristic of our Department of Immersive Media Engineering is that we take care of students closely until graduation. The chairman of the department has a strong idea that students must graduate with the required competencies, so we provide free educational content to students and let them take retests to improve their competencies. ▲ Competency Complementary Training Domains Q. What do you think is important in complementary education? First and foremost, I think it’s important to be able to build competencies that can be utilized in practice, not just learn theory. What impressed me about Elice training was that the training content provided practical exercises along with theoretical lectures. It was great to be able to experience coding directly after learning the theory. This kind of hands-on training was one of the reasons I chose Elice. Q. I was wondering if you have any further plans for competency assessment and training in the future. We recruit new graduate students twice a year, so we plan to continue to conduct competency assessment twice a year, and we also plan to conduct supplementary training during vacation periods. :) Q. Finally, if you would recommend Elice to other organizations, please tell us why. I would like to mention that it is possible to have quick and continuous communication because the person in charge is matched one-on-one with each organization. Since the person in charge is matched one-on-one with each organization, it was possible to set up training, configure assessment questions, etc. according to our needs. Also, we asked a lot of small questions, and they responded quickly and responded to them, which was convenient from the management point of view. I think Elice can be a good alternative if you are looking for an assessment or training that suits your organization. 👉  Learn more about Elice test solutions 👉  Get an assessment and training consultation tailored to your organization *Elice owns the copyright to this content, which is protected under copyright law. *Without prior consent, secondary processing and commercial use of the content are prohibited.
