Abstract:In this paper, the success of students during their first year at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences at the faculty of Communication and Creative Business (formerly called Media, Information and Communication) will be compared prior to Covid-19 and during Covid-19 in the first year. With the purpose to determine the influence of the transition from offline to online education on student success. Student success is defined in two ways. First by the general average grade point (GPA) of all the exams in this first year, which in the Netherlands is the preliminary examination (propedeuse diploma issued after the first year of studies in the Netherlands). Second, the time it takes to pass all first-year exams and earn the propedeuse (diploma of the preliminary examination). Furthermore, the mandatory student choice test (SCT), taken prior to the entrance of the University, is compared with the success of the students and examined on its predictive value. This will ultimately provide insight in the implications of a year of emergency remote teaching and enhance the knowledge about influences of online education upon student success in higher education.
