Questions related to Undergraduate Education
As an undergraduate student, I was invited to present a research paper at an international conference that is coming up soon in my school but I have not done that before, I need your guidelines, please 🙏
I am still an undergraduate and a newcomer to this field, so I very much appreciate any Professor answering my question.
Assessment of professional attitude in Medical students is very challenging subject. I am looking forward to hearing from you about the up-to-date manner to do so.
Good day everyone. I am an undergraduate student and this is my first research. I have 8 samples I‘m working on for protein determination. I prepared 4 of the samples for protein analysis by making up 0.1g to 10ml while for the last 4, 0.01g also made up to 10ml because they were not up to 0.1g in weight. Same procedure was carried out on all. Is this allowed??
Am doing my undergraduate project and I want to know the major difference between theoretical framework and theoretical review to
avoid interchanging the two.
Am preparing for my undergraduate project research, and am a student at Enugu State University. Am looking for trending and interesting topics that can earn me a good grade on my project. I need suggestions please 🙏
As i am a undergraduate final year student, I have interest in fields like ecological restoration, G.I.S , urban ecology so i needed a suggestion about how i can narrow down my research topic in these fields ?
Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!
Good evening everyone,
I have been selected to pursue a research project on U.S. Drug courts by the Ronald McNair Undergraduate Scholar Program. Does anyone have any experience, or know anyone who has?
As the world becomes more complex and interconnected, the importance of systems thinking is rising, with engineering being no exception to this trend. Should we as engineering educators aim to teach and train our students in systems thinking from the get-go (first year, first semester), or should we wait for later years when they're acquired more discipline-specific (electrical, mechanical, etc.) knowledge and skills? In other words, is there value in teaching systems thinking to novices, even in a basic way?
I am having trouble searching for best software or site, platform which can help me create my own math exam questions ( undergraduate level), I don't want multiple choice type questions, in fact a platform where student can enter numerical and symbols and it does grading too but in a smart way, by this I mean, grading closer to instructor grading.
If anyone knows such a site/platform or software, please let me know
Thank you in advance for every help and comment
Hi dears colleague;
I'm looking for an efficient procedure to determine fundamental learning outcomes for undergraduate students at university.

thank you for your help.
Hello everyone , im a undergraduate mining engineering. For the major project I'm looking for focused areas of research or project working. I want some suggestions on this which are very helpful for me.
I'm Nikki and I'm an undergraduate student of Psychology. I just want to ask if someone knows how to interpret "A New Set Of Measurements For The Materialism Scale" by Viet Dung Trinh and Ian Phau. Or a new scale with an interpretation included?
Thank you so much!
I am an undergraduate student researching on mediating factors of student burnout. Does anyone know where can I get a free access of Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBSS)? or are there any scales about Student Burnout I can alternatively use?
Replies would be very much valued.
Can anyone provide me with any resources about development and validation instruments (questionnaires) for undergraduate student perceptions towards blended learning? I am currently in need of related instruments to research undergraduate students' perceptions towards blended learning in relation to student learning commitment as one of the values of the reflective pedagogical paradigm.. Thank you so much.
I have read an article about Perception of Students towards Online Learning (POSTOL), but there is no link or extended source to find the instrument.
Or maybe there is another reference? Thank you
I have used the 12 Item version of the Community Attitudes to Mental Illness (CAMI) scale for my undergraduate dissertation. The scale uses Likert measurements where positive statements are scored
'1' Strongly agree = 100
'2' = Somewhat agree = 75
'3' = 'Neither agree not disagree' = 50
'4' = Somewhat disagree = 75
'5' = Strongly disagree = 0
However, there is also a 6th option of 'don't know' the original paper states those choosing this option are excluded from the total score. Do I need to code this 6th option in order to exclude it? I have tried the select cases function but its still including the 6th option in the total score. Very confused! Any advice will be greatly apprieciated.
I was taught that a curriculum developer must have conducted research for 10-15 years in the field or taught that discipline for over a decade to be qualified to review or develop its content.
Many private institutions in my country region and recently some public ones hire "multidisciplinary experts" with training in one discipline that has little or no relationships with the content of the course to be taught to teach undergraduate or graduate students
It is commonly noticed that non experts in fields are not only reading to teach but now develop the curriculum for those courses or disciplines.
Many years of teaching or conducting research avails the scientist of the teacher with the content to be taught or to be instructed for teaching.
kindly contribute to this discussion so we evade an educational fiasco
Thank you for your suggestions, I'm still an undergraduate and have little idea on what study to focus on. I'd like some simple topic with output that can also be done easily.
Hello, dear community!
I am looking for a Fulbright-like initiative. I have an opportunity to go to the US to research, yet the professor does not have funding. While there is not a Fulbright program that I qualify for, are you aware of any organization/fund/possibility for an undergraduate LL.B student from Brazil to receive a grant to research in the US?

I am currently working on my undergraduate dissertation project which uses the BFI scale to assess personality traits in students.
Would an expert in this field please be able to let me know if I am doing my scoring correctly (I am doing this manually without SPSS for now).
I have currently reversed the items as listed on the original BFI eg. Extraversion: 1, 6R, 11, 16, 21R, 26, 31R, 36.
I will then add these up for each participant eg. Extraversion: 5, 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 4 = 30
Is the next step to average this total?? eg. 30 / 8 = 3.75
It is majorly needed for research purposes. Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

A long time ago, scientific research was mysterious, recognized as the patent for Ph.D. candidates. However, with the development of society, scientific research is becoming more accessible and convenient. Nowadays, even undergraduates can participate in scientific research without any difficulty. There even present some specially designed programs to support undergraduates for their research. Such as the student research training program (SRTP). These activities help students develop their lab skills and critical thinking and make it possible for undergraduate students to find their future career direction. Apart from these advantages, there still existed some disadvantages. Firstly, the Ph.D. candidate, staff, and PI in the laboratory are generally busy, so it is hard to take time to guide students personally. Secondly, It is difficult for undergraduates to form their views on experiments or lab techniques because they have not thoroughly studied the theories of biology. Additionally, Due to the lack of fund support, it is nearly impossible for undergraduates to carry out research independently and finally make achievements. Last but not least, undergraduates participating in scientific research will increase the pressure of social competition, resulting in some dire consequences. What do you think of the current situation of Undergraduates' participation in scientific research?

Chemical engineering proponents claim that breath of the field as a means to find suitable and prosperous careers. Introduction to the field of Chemical Engineering begins as an undergraduate. During my time in fundamental stages of education, the faculty and experiences as one-among-many had the most impact upon my life and learning path. During the last two decades, a number of technologies and understanding of education have lead to higher education institutions to provide for 'Maker' spaces, 'Collaboratories', 'Start-Up' hubs, etc. In my many interactions with senior ChE leaders and aspiring ChE's, I am interested in discussion of how laboratory capabilities inspired or contributed to successful outcomes that set apart ChE departments and laboratories.
I am currently working on an undergraduate thesis on interruptive smartphone push notifications' (banner-type) influence on online users' (weak) comprehension and (loss of) interest in online news. I found this thought to be a possible threat not only to the relevance of online news when competing with the rapid-growing attention economy but also, and more importantly, a threat to the purpose of journalism that is delivering the truth.
I think that qualitative surveys could possibly be applicable to my research questions (descriptively written above) however, I am unsure if it fits a grounded theory. If not, what could you possibly suggest?
Thank you, in advance! :)

I'm an undergraduate student in Business Management, I am confused about choosing a topic for my thesis so can you give me some ideas?
One of the most major problems of writing an undergraduate article is the lack of access to a laboratory and a professor to check the accuracy of article information in the laboratory.
For example, at my university, only postgraduate, PhD and postdoctoral students are allowed to work in the laboratory. What should an undergraduate student do if he or she wants to write an article and extract the information needed for his or her paper from the lab?
Undergraduate students do not have access to professors and laboratories to verify their ideas, what should they do to write an article?
Can he write another type of article that is published in a valid journal but does not require laboratory information? Or can he collaborate with a foreign professor to write an article?
What is the solution to the problem?
Hi every one, I am teaching Math for for Engineering field (undergraduate). I have a lot textbooks but need your guide or advice for some books could help me to make lecture note.
Dear fellow researchers
My colleagues and I are in the process of conducting an overview of systematic reviews studies on the subject “ Teaching in Evidence-Based Practice among undergraduate healthcare student: what interventions have been used and what EBP-related outcomes have been assessed and achieved among the students
In our data collection proces we also reach out to experts in the field.
So if you have expertice in the subject of teaching in evidence-based practice among undergraduate healthcare students, we would like to ask you if you are aware of any systematic review – ongoing or completed; published or unpublished that might be relevant to us
We are investigating the impact of online learning environment on sustained attention and student engagement among undergraduate students (Year 1-3).
We had the participants watch a lecture video and answer multiple choice questions related to the content of the video. We also had them fill an engagement questionnaire which had questions about their involvement with peers and various university related activities.
Hypothesis I - 1st year students are able to focus more over a long period of time than 2nd and 3rd year students.
Hypothesis II - 1st year students actively participate and are more engaged with peers than 2nd and 3rd year students.
My questions are:
1. What statistical test would be most appropriate?
2. How do I set a value to prove significance...for example they had 13 MCQ questions, how do I know what number of questions they need to have answered correctly in order to say they paid more attention?
I'm very lost, i'd appreciate your help and any remarks that could provide me some clarity.
The decline in students’ skills had lead medical educators to think of alternative options to maintain betterment of clinical skills among medical students.
What about the option of paying patients/persons to be subject of BST?

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Peradeniya Sri Lanka, currently working on ecto-parasites in domesticated animals. I found difficulties in the identification due to a lack of a proper identification key, especially for the lice and fleas. Please recommend me any description or taxonomic key to identify fleas and lice in domesticated animals.
I am in the 2nd year of my undergraduate and I am very much interested in doing research in biology, chemistry and physics! I saw research opportunities under my professors but they are too complex for me to even think about it! However, I had this thought that famous scientists, like Issac Newton, never did any complex experiments. So, it's also possible that I can think & observe the world around me & figure out something like that too! So, I had a couple of questions to begin my this adventure:
- Does research has to be unique and something that has never done before?
- How can I think of research topics/questions? or is there a website to which researchers refer in order to find a research question?
- If I conduct research at home, can I still try to publish in a well-known publication if they like it?
I would really appreciate if someone can help me to explain in detail all the things, I need to do in order to begin thinking & doing my research!
Hello, I am about to start my final year as an undergraduate Electrical a Engineer . I am going to be writing my research proposal this year and was hoping someone could give me a bit of a perspective upon the active general research topics that would be worth focusing effort upon, or a certain area of research to consider.
