2 Overview Summer Bridge ASAP Statway

3 Summer Bridge: Literature Institutional policies should facilitate student completion of necessary developmental coursework as early as possible in the educational sequence (Poppy Copy, A.4) Orientation, assessment, and placement should be mandatory for all new students (Poppy Copy, B.1) Counseling support should be substantial, accessible, and integrated with academic programs (Poppy Copy, B.3)

4 Summer Bridge: Description Students are assessed and invited to apply while attending local high schools (Poppy Copy, B.1) The summer before they come to Pierce, they take a basic skills English course along with a College Success course (Poppy Copy, A.4) Student success is supported by tutors, instructors, and counselors (Poppy Copy, B.3)

8 ASAP: Literature and Data Counseling support should be substantial, accessible, and integrated with academic programs (Poppy Copy, B.3) A high degree of structure is provided in developmental education courses (Poppy Copy, D.5) The overall success rate for Algebra at Pierce is 48% (Beginning Algebra) and 53% (Intermediate)

9 ASAP: Description Students take two Algebra courses along with the College Success course in the same semester (Poppy Copy D.5) Students are immersed in math (Poppy Copy D.5) Student success is supported by tutors, instructors, and counselors (Poppy Copy D.4)

11 Retention Rates for Students in ASAP & Non- ASAP Math 125 Courses – Fall 09

12 Next Steps Scale up 8 SB cohorts in summer ASAP cohorts in fall 2010 ASAP cohort for SB students in fall 2010 Concerns No block registration Precarious funding

13 Statway: Literature The 3 courses with the highest rates of failure and withdrawal in postsecondary education are all developmental mathematics courses. Fail rates for developmental math and transfer-level math are often above 50% As trigonometry enrollments fall, statistics enrollments rise

14 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching 2 semester math pathway for non-STEM majors C0ntextualizes algebra for statistics, data analysis, and quantitative reasoning “Do-College” component 19 colleges nation-wide = “The Collaboratory” Statway: Description

15 Statway: Challenges Teach components of algebra needed for the workplace, citizenship, and statistics Develop a “Plan B” bridge Create articulated courses Maintain intellectual rigor
