1 Math ACCESS Program Student Orientation Revised 7/17/12

2 Welcome to Math ACCESS! ACCESS is Daytona States Academic Curriculum Component to Enhance Student Success

3 ACCESS Isnt for Everyone You may be referred to the Math ACCESS Program if you were unable to register for classes due to three unsuccessful attempts to succeed in either: MAT0018 – Pre-Algebra MAT0028 – Introductory Algebra MAT1033 – Intermediate Algebra

4 ACCESS provides a valuable academic opportunity... Once you successfully complete the Math ACCESS Program: You may re-enroll in Daytona State non- math classes You will receive permission to re-take the PERT for Math

5 Introduction This brief orientation will: Explain how Math ACCESS works Clarify whats necessary for you to succeed in Math ACCESS

6 ACCESS is Self-Paced This is an independent course of study. You alone are responsible for your progress!

7 Successful completion of Math ACCESS is an achievable goal which is dependent on: A strong determination to succeed A concerted effort to understand math concepts Regular Academic Support Center attendance

8 Is there a fee for ACCESS? No! ACCESS is FREE Please note that you will not receive a course grade or credit But succeeding in ACCESS will prepare you for success in future courses by improving your math skills

9 How will you Learn? You will use an interactive computer program, SkillsTutor, to target your problem areas Other resources (i.e., videos, other interactive computer programs, Websites, and textbooks) are also available for your use

10 Time Limit for completion of Math Math ACCESS should be completed over the duration of one semester, however your personal commitment to complete the modules prescribed for you will determine the actual length of time you spend in Math ACCESS

11 A lack of participation and progress This will result in your being dropped from the Math ACCESS Program Discuss any problems that may prevent your active participation with your counselor or a learning specialist.

12 Math learning disability? If you feel you may have a math learning disability: Contact Student Disability Services for information about how to determine if you may have a disability that affects your potential to do well in math

13 Can you register for classes while enrolled in ACCESS? During your first semester in ACCESS, you may not register for classes. Instead, you will: Focus on achieving success in Math ACCESS Come to the Academic Support Center often Build a strong foundation in math

14 Math ACCESS Program Logistics...

15 Your First Steps View the Orientation PowerPoint 2. Complete an Application 3. Take a Diagnostic Test 1 for Pre- Algebra

16 Diagnostic Test 1 Consists of 50 questions related to Pre-Algebra Takes about an hour to complete Identifies your areas of strength and weakness Determines what you will study

17 Diagnostic Test 1 Academic Components The test results are divided up into six major categories or modules The results for each module are graded separately to readily identify specific areas of strength and weakness

18 Diagnostic Test 1 Academic Components Based on your diagnostic test 1 results, you may be assigned any where from 0 to 6 learning modules to complete

19 The ACCESS Modules Your assigned modules will focus on areas in need of improvement, as indicated by your diagnostic test 1 results Each module covers a specific area of mathematics

20 Progress Checks Once you finished each assigned module, you will complete a progress check consisting of 20 questions A math learning specialist will go over your results with you, clarifying any areas of difficulty With a score of 80% or above, you can move on to the next assigned module If you score below 80%, you will continue to work in that module on those topics you find unclear and re-take the progress check at a later date

21 Diagnostic Test 2 Consists of 50 questions related to Introductory and Intermediate Algebra Takes about an hour to complete Identifies your areas of strength and weakness Determines what you will study

22 Diagnostic Test 2 Academic Components Test 2 results are also divided into six major categories or modules Based on your diagnostic test 2 results, you may be assigned any where from 0 to 6 learning modules to complete

23 The ACCESS Modules Each module covers a specific area of mathematics

24 Progress Checks Once you finished each assigned module, you will complete a progress check consisting of 20 questions A math learning specialist will go over your results with you, clarifying any areas of difficulty With a score of 80% or above, you can move on to the next assigned module If you score below 80%, you will continue to work in that module on those topics you find unclear and re-take the progress check at a later date

25 When youve completed all your assigned modules... You will take a 50 question Post-test, similar to your Diagnostic Tests 1 and 2 With a score of 80% on the post-test, you will receive authorization to re-take the PERT With a score less than 80% on the post- test, you will be allowed to continue in ACCESS and be given newly assigned modules

26 At the semesters end... If you have demonstrated a mastery of at least 10 modules, you may continue in Math ACCESS and register for non-math classes If you have not completed at least 10 modules, you will be dropped from Math ACCESS and may be referred for career counseling

27 After you take the PERT... You have successfully completed Math ACCESS when your PERT score falls within the range of MAT1033 or higher.

28 Next Step Meet with your advisor to determine which college credit math course your PERT score will allow you to enroll in: (MAT1033) intermediate algebra (MAT1105) college algebra (MGF2106) college math

29 If you do not score within the range of MAT1033 or higher... You will meet with your academic advisor: You may continue in Math ACCESS only if your PERT score shows improvement from your original score If you do not meet this requirement, you will be dropped from ACCESS and referred for career counseling.

30 Remember, you will succeed in the ACCESS Program through hard work and perseverance. You can do it!
