2. Redesign Objectives Student requirements based on educational and career goals Accommodation of Learning Styles On-demand Individual Assistance Immediate Feedback on Tests and Homework Opportunity to Progress More Quickly (or slowly) More Frequent Opportunities for Success

3. Student class time was in EMPORIUM STYLE Large computer center 81 student stations Accommodates two class sections of 30 each Allows for drop-ins Open six days per week Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Also open during fall and spring breaks Staffed by student tutors, professional tutors (retired high school teachers, etc) and instructors . Ratio of student to tutor is 10:1.Student class time was in EMPORIUM STYLE Large computer center 81 student stations Accommodates two class sections of 30 each Allows for drop-ins Open six days per week Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Also open during fall and spring breaks Staffed by student tutors, professional tutors (retired high school teachers, etc) and instructors . Ratio of student to tutor is 10:1.

4. Modularization & Multi-Exit Options

5. Mastery Learning New student begins with Pre-Test on Module 1 80% mastery moves student to next module If less than 80%, Student studies work text book : Connecting the Concepts – A Modular Approach to Developmental Mathematics and simultaneously does each homework assignment for Module 1 in MyMathLab + (80% Mastery) After homework is completed student works and turns in Notebook problems found in MML+ (100% Mastery). Instructor checks work and mathematical notation. Student takes Practice Test in MyMathLab+ (80% Mastery) Student takes Post Test in MyMathLab+ (75% Mastery) Student , moves to Module 2 and so on Returning student begins with next required module not previously completed Components of Module Grade Course Grade CriteriaComponents of Module Grade Course Grade Criteria

6. Learning Increased

7. Retention & Success Increased

8. Redefining Faculty Roles Faculty facilitate and evaluate student learning - guiding each student’s study of developmental math. Faculty counsel students on their module requirements relative to their career goal. Faculty lead small group instruction on difficult topics. Faculty serve as tutors in SMART Math Center. Full time faculty mentor adjunct faculty. Faculty Load 3 Credit Hour Course = 3 Instructional Load Hours Office Hours spent as tutors in SMART Math Center and Course Management Faculty Load 3 Credit Hour Course = 3 Instructional Load Hours Office Hours spent as tutors in SMART Math Center and Course Management

9. Record Keeping Created “Shell Courses” that do not designate modules to be completed First, all students enroll in DSPM I Student completes at least 4 modules (or all required if < 4) Students still needing to complete 3 or more modules enroll in DSPM II. Then DSPM III if 3 or more modules still needed Students needing only 1 or 2 modules enroll in DSPM IV Table created in Banner/SOATEST to indicate modules completed for each student When a module is indicated satisfied, the student may enroll in any college course for which the module is a prerequisite Automated process of reporting students’ module completion in MML+ to Banner

10. Cost Savings for Institution JSCC reduced cost per student by over 20% JSCC improved retention of students by over 14% JSCC increased college enrollment numbers by enrolling students more readily in credit bearing courses Reduced total number of sections by 28% Increasing maximum class size from 24 to 30 Providing opportunity for students to complete developmental coursework more quickly Reduced number of sections taught by full time faculty from 78% to 58% Full time Adjunct Total Historically 63 26 89 SMART Math 37 34 71 Utilized tutors at lower cost per hour than faculty Reduced total number of sections by 28% Increasing maximum class size from 24 to 30 Providing opportunity for students to complete developmental coursework more quickly Reduced number of sections taught by full time faculty from 78% to 58% Full time Adjunct Total Historically 63 26 89 SMART Math 37 34 71 Utilized tutors at lower cost per hour than faculty
