for remedial students into College Algebra
 students who complete Math 96 now have
70% success rate in Math 126

Overall Success
2012-2013
 Large scale pilot of 120E and 126E, without Math
95 prerequisite for Math 96 and 120E
 80% of remedially-placed freshmen earned
college credit in first year
2013-2014
 Systematic placement yielded higher enrollments
 Pass rates >90% in 120E, 80% in 126E
 Fine-tuning placement in
Math 95 vs Math 96 OR 120E
Biggest Challenges: Staffing and $$
Student/Teacher Ratio Smaller to Support
Remedial Students
 Credit Bearing Means State Funded
 LOA Positions Have 12 Credit Limit
5+5+?=12
5+?+?=12
 Lecturers Can Teach 15, 16, 20 Credits
(with overload), But That’s More
Expensive

Success Rates of Freshmen with

ACT 19-21 or Math 95 in Math 120E+96A
ACT 20-21 in Math 126E+96D
Are as High as Those of Freshmen with
ACT >=22 in Math120 and 126
Math 95 Provides Common Foundation for
Weakest Students
