Out of Class Testing: A Student Success Collaboration
Gallegos, Mary Ellen; Reese, Dane; Reynolds, Chantel
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v11 n1 p57-60 Fall 2003
The issue of student success is a common concern in the typical community college, and no less so at Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) in New Mexico. As a result of a comprehensive program review of student success rates in mathematics, the Mathematics Departments in the Divisions of Arts and Sciences and Developmental Studies collaborated on significant changes to the SFCC mathematics programs. The most significant outcomes of the program review included the development of a pre- and post-test assessment of math skills and a shift to out-of-class testing for the math class with the lowest success rate. The pre/post test study provided an alternative assessment which confirmed that there was learning taking place in Math 102. (Contains 6 tables.)
