Miami-Dade Community College Course Sequencing Pathways: A Computerized Course Selection System.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
The Course Sequencing Pathways Computer Support System was developed at Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC) to aid students and advisors in selecting appropriate courses based on test scores, MDCC graduation requirements, the university of choice (if applicable), and the student's major. A student report, which is calculated on-line, is available as part of the Advisement Graduation Information System and as a separate report created for first-time-in-college students when they complete basic skills testing. The report has several features: (1) a list of suggested and required courses in the English and math sequences, the General Education core, the General Education distribution courses, electives, required courses for the major, and physical education requirements; (2) a list of all of the pre- and co-requisites for the courses listed; (3) a list of all registration holds that the student will encounter when attempting to register; and (4) career information related to the student's major, including a general statement on career opportunities in the field and information particular to the campus. These reports are available for use as part of the advisement process by the time that students have completed their testing and orientation program. Samples of Course Sequencing Pathways Reports are included. (AYC)
