  14. PASS- Spring 2010Evaluation • Student Interviews- Fall 2010 • Return to MPC? Did the PASS learning community help? “I really feel like the counselor and Kim helped me stay motivated. I was a lot more excited about school after I finished last semester.” “PASS Counselor, Alex and instructors really encouraged me to come back and try even though I did not do well in classes last semester.”

  15. PASS- Spring 2010Evaluation • Student Interviews- Fall 2010 • How confident do you feel in your classes? “I didn’t feel great about starting classes this Fall but I didn’t want to lose what I had done last semester. I really felt like the instructors cared.” “If it wasn’t for the instructor and counselor support I would have never been able to continue with school.”

  16. PASS- Spring 2010Evaluation • Student Interviews- Fall 2010 • What are some successful skills you have used? “I use a lot of time management skills now. I keep a schedule of my week with me all the time.” “I go to the instructors a lot more now. Before I wouldn’t have talked to them but I feel a lot better about doing that.”

  17. PASS2010-2011 • Two PASS Communities • Math Focus • Math 351 (Pre-Algebra) • Mandated Supplemental Instruction • PERS 200 (Orientation to College) • English Focus • English 301 (Intro. to Academic Writing) • English 302 (Intro. to Academic Reading) • PERS 200 (Orientation to College)

  18. PASS FALL 2011 and Beyond? • Continue the research in Spring 2011 • The research, so far, indicates that PASS would be a good model to continue and possibly replicate • Not eligible for Basic Skills funding • Institutionalize? • Fund portions? • Instructors running their own learning community with no external funding/support
