Research interests

1. For 2018-2021, co-researcher from UoP for European Erasmus + project “ Development of online international adaptive progress testing (OIAPT)” alongside Thomas Gale and Steven Burr.

2.  2016_2018, co-researcher in an inter-faculty project, led by Dr Kamran Ali, on “Impact of Learning Disabilities on the Performance of Students in Healthcare Education”. I led medical programme part of this research. This research has been presented at Association of Dental Research meeting in Vancouver in June 2019.

3. 2017-2018, J.Kisielewska, D.Zahra, E.Gabe-Thomas, “Impact of students’ engagement with online formative medical knowledge tests (AMK) on their academic performance”.

4. 2016-2017, J. Kisielewska, D.Zahra, E.Gabe-Thomas: two interdisciplinary projects related to improving students’ academic performance in electrocardiogram (ECG) interpreting skills: “Factors that determine students’ engagement in ECG interpretation skills formative assessment” and “To what extend does engagement in formative assessment improve ECG summative assessment performance”.
