Exploratory Study for Relationships between Graduation Work and Subsequent Situation:
Quantitative Study Using Text Mining
Hiroyuki Kuromiya

April, 2019

Abstract
As the evidence-based education and research-based active learning are promoted by the government, we demand a quantitative effect analysis of research-based active learning. This study analyzed 738 students’ graduation work and their status after graduation. Data are retrieved from the post-graduation survey conducted in 2018. Our research questions are (1) “what are the strongly related items in the questionnaire to the topics related to student’s investigative attitude?” and (2) “what are the strongly related topics in the thesis to student’s major in the university?”. Our results show that student who used the terms related to “participation activities” tend to participate in volunteer activities even after their graduation and students who used the term related to “analysis” tend to say they are good at logical thinking and avoid unreasonable beliefs. We checked the research theme in graduation research strongly correlated to student’s major at university (e.g. students who choose topic “linguistic” tend to major literature at university). It suggests that research-based active learning can affect students on their career and values.
