1 Student Success Division Temple College August 2013

2 Why Developmental / College Preparatory Courses? Students who have not met the minimum requirements for enrolling in college credit courses as specified by the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) may be required to take developmental / college preparatory courses to learn the foundational skills to become college-ready.

3 Do I have to stay in Developmental / College Preparatory Courses? The Temple College TSI Plan states that students who are dropped from a required developmental course may be dropped from all courses in which the student is registered during the semester the drop occurred. The college preparatory course(s) must be completed with a grade of C or better to progress to the next level or to become college-ready.

4 Leopard Success is an accelerated non-credit-based academic preparation program for students seeking assistance in mathematics, writing, and/or reading skills. It is an excellent option for students whose placement tests results indicate they are on the cusp of readiness for credit level courses. The program offers diagnostic testing, individualized study plans, personalized faculty assistance, and retesting for placement in college-credit courses. Students work under the guidance of a faculty member who serves as a facilitator throughout the programs length. While students will work with a high degree of independence on their individualized study plans, they are encouraged to regularly seek assistance from the program facilitator. The program facilitator closely monitors student progress, attempts to identify concept barriers, and works with the student to learn the material in a manner that allows the student to continue making progress.

19 This course teaches: research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation; factors that impact learning, and application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply the learning skills discussed across their own academic programs and become effective and efficient learners. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models they have learned. Course instruction focuses on four main content areas: developing and maintaining motivation for college success, developing and using study strategies and skills, building community and connecting to campus resources, and developing a college completion plan. This course is for college credit.
