Thread + 1, dev math “successes”

Posted on January 3, 2020


Reading about Salt Lake Community College winning an award   for their Quantitative  Literacy Pathways.

The proportion of students retained into a higher math course the following semester was markedly higher for the new gateway course (.44 in Fall 2016) than for Intermediate Algebra – the previous gateway course (.33 in Fall 2015 and .3 in Fall 2016).

These are the folks that are the best!   and …   fewer than half of the students are “retained into a higher math course.”    Yes, it’s an improvement but yes, we’re still leaving students in the lurch.
