GRADUATE'S PERCEPTION OF THEIR RESEARCH EXPERIENCE: EVIDENCE FROM A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY OF BANGLADESH

Nowreen Yasmin [1]

13 15

This paper aims at exploring graduate students’ research experience by investigating into their perception about different aspects of their pursuing research in a public University of Bangladesh. With response to that aim, it explains graduates’ experience in six different aspects which together construct an effective research experience: a model proposed by Keith Trigwell and Harriet Dunbar-Goddet in 2005. It combines all the relevant findings from a rigorous quantitative study conducted with a sample of 101 graduates of that public university who graduated in the year of 2015 and 2016. Results ascertain that students’ perspective of research experience is generally favourable and positive for four out of the six aspects. Additionally, considerable differences in perception were found with respect to different socioeconomic background of the students. Furthermore, overall student satisfaction with their experience for conducting academic research as graduates is found linked with some particular factors in juxtaposition with quality of thesis supervision, facilities and infrastructure of the university. Positive agreement on the availability of those factors significantly generates higher satisfaction with overall research experience. Therefore, the findings provide the evidences to initiate appropriate management strategies by the university administration with a view to facilitating students’ research experience during graduate program. Additionally, the study introduces an effective approach evaluate research students’ experience that combines both evaluation of the research facilities and scholastic actions.
