Developing a software tool for interpreting Gymnasium students' grades

Abstract: During the final years at the gymnasium – Germany’s highest tier of secondary education – many students become increasingly aware of the extent that their grades (particularly the final Abitur grade) influence their career opportunities. Unfortunately, the laws and regulations concerning the aggregation of all the different grades are complex, sometimes even prohibitively opaque. In particular, it is difficult to interpret the existing grades and detect potential problems while the Abitur is still in progress. In this bachelor’s thesis, an effort is made to support the student consultation at one German school by implementing a system that is capable of assisting students with this task. Relevant information is drawn from partially available grades, processed and presented to the students. To that end, a development process in accordance with User Centered Design takes place.

This thesis constitutes the official end of my studies and awards me the degree Bachelor of Science in Human Computer Interaction. Planning and implementing a practical software project contrasts nicely with my more theoretically focused previous thesis.

Developing a software tool for interpreting Gymnasium students' grades – Thesis defense

Students at the Gymnasium (Germany's highest tier of general education) are often eager to get an overview of their scholarly accomplishments to be able to make predictions about their future options, but the system is rather complex.

For my bachelor's thesis in the HCI programme, I have designed and developed an application to support the students and encourage self-assessment. It is capable of calculating average grades and pointing out encouraging as well as dangerous trends.

In this talk in the HCI seminar, I presented my empirical results and development work.

As my studies continue towards their inevitable conclusion, I am once again faced with the situation of having to write a bachelor thesis some time soon-ish. I'm fortunate enough to have already written one of those, so it's not as much of a big unknown for me as it is for others (which doesn't mean that it's routine in any way either). I'm currently (and have been for a good couple of weeks, actually) in the process of brainstorming possible topics. By now I figure I'm not going to make any steps forward by twisting and turning stuff in my head over and over, so here I am late thursday night trying to put some of it into writing. I also thought I might as well involve y'all, since that seemed to work pretty well the first time around.
