2 SI Elements: Courses – historically difficult courses SI Leader – passed course with an A – paid for attending all classes with current class – does not re-lecture – leads/facilitates discussion – shares study strategies – viewed as a peer Sessions – two one hour sessions per wk – planned around students Session – group participation Participant – attended at least one SI session – attendance is voluntary Source: MSJC MVC Math Coordinator – Janice Levasseur Compiled: MSJC R&P Dept. – XCHAS Ext

6 Grade Distribution SI versus Non-SI group FA06/SP07/FA07/SP08/FA08 Successful completions in the SI Group (69%) far exceed the Non-SI (40%). The % of Ws were significantly higher among Non-SI Group (33%) relative to the SI Group (13%), Ws and Fs account for over ½ of non-SI grades. Successful completions in the SI Group (69%) far exceed the Non-SI (40%).

Source: MSJC MVC Math Coordinator – Janice Levasseur Compiled: MSJC R&P Dept. – XCHAS Ext Key Findings & Next Steps: Math 96 – 2nd semester of supporting with SI with up side down results (2 different instructors) Next step: determined the cause before further M96 SI support is given on MVC Hypothesis – i.e. possibility due to under-prepared M90 entering M96 - test prep = 1 to 4 sessions attendees Summer session SI – 4 sections SU08 with little or no success- summer students tend to be stronger academically Next step: MVC will not run SI in future summer sessions Increases success rate Selection of courses are data based driven BSI funded - 3 classes (math 50,51,96) as a result SI courses will be offered in: history (FA08,SP09) psychology (FA08,SP09) Spanish (SP09) SI growth sources: funding (not a replacement for tutoring) availability of SI leaders (trained & experienced) seasoned SI coordinator (trained, experienced & dedicated champion)
