1 Preparing for Senate Bill 1908 May 21, 2009

2 Today’s Outline  Content of Option 1 – Math for College Success (MAT 0024) – and Option 2 – Mathematics for College Readiness (MAT 1033)  Pupil Progression through these two options and articulation to Chipola  Open discussion – Questions and answers  ? – Have you made your decision (Opt 1 or 2) already?

3 Current Chipola Guidelines  Score less than 72 on CPT (19 on ACT 440 on SAT) student enters MAT 0024 – Elementary Algebra – non-credit  Score 72 or greater on CPT, with High School Algebra 1 only, student enters MAT 1033 – Intermediate Algebra – Elective credit  Score 72 or greater on CPT, with High School Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, student enters MAC 1105/6/7 or higher (depending on High School coursework)  Once they enter they must follow the progression /6/7 without skipping courses

4 Senate Bill 1908  Major Components Administer postsecondary readiness assessment before 12 th grade Administer postsecondary readiness assessment before 12 th grade Student who meets cut score is eligible for enrollment in college credit for 2 years without retesting (72 CPT, 19 ACT, 440 SAT) Student who meets cut score is eligible for enrollment in college credit for 2 years without retesting (72 CPT, 19 ACT, 440 SAT) Student who does not meet cut score must be provided an opportunity to remediate while in high school Student who does not meet cut score must be provided an opportunity to remediate while in high school Remediation must be collaborative effort between district high schools and college Remediation must be collaborative effort between district high schools and college

5 Math for College Success (MCS – MAT 0024)  0.5 high school elective credit only  Course Code Directory number:  Prepares students for entry level College Mathematics (MAT 1033 Intermediate Algebra)  Mirrors the non-college credit, postsecondary developmental course Elementary Algebra, MAT 0024

6 Math for College Success  Recommended for students entering 12th grade and scoring below 72 on the Math section of the CPT, below 440 on the SAT Math, or below 19 on the ACT Math  Exit Criteria – To earn a C, student must have an average of 70 or better in coursework AND a score of 60 or better on the Exit Exam

7 Course Material – MAT 0024 Chipola Web Site Publisher web site /product/0,3110, ,00.html /product/0,3110, ,00.html OnLine Supplements

8 Mathematics for College Readiness (MCR – MAT 1033)  1.0 high school Math credit  Course Code Directory number:  Prepares students for MAT 1105 College Algebra  Comparable to MAT 1033 Intermediate Algebra  Strengthens skills of students who have completed Algebra I, II, and Geometry and who wish to pursue credit generating Mathematics courses at the college level

9 Math for College Readiness  Most appropriate for students entering 12th grade and scoring between on the Math section of the CPT, between on the SAT Math or between on the ACT Math  Exit Criteria (Eligibility for MAC 1105/6/7) – Average of 70 or better in coursework AND a score above 86 on the CPT retake

11 Possible Scenarios  Student scores less than 72 on the CPT Student scores less than 72 on the CPT Student scores less than 72 on the CPT  Student scores 72 or more on the CPT Student scores 72 or more on the CPT Student scores 72 or more on the CPT  NOTE: in these scenarios 72 to 86 on CPT is equivalent to 19 to 22 on ACT and 440 to 520 on SAT.

12 Frequently Asked Questions Will students receive postsecondary credit for the remediation course (MCS)? No Will students receive postsecondary credit for the remediation course (MCS)?

13 Recently Asked Questions  1) If students pass the course work, but do not make above 86 on the CPT or 22 on the ACT, can they still pass the course for high school credit? Yes  2) If the student is enrolled in an Algebra II class, do they have to be in a CPT class. Enrollment in a CPT class is not required, but recommended if they score below 72 on CPT.  3) Do students have to meet the requirements for CPT to graduate? No If not will this soon be a requirement? ???  3) Do students have to meet the requirements for CPT to graduate? No If not will this soon be a requirement? ???  4) Do students have to score 72 or higher on the CPT to take MAT 1033 at the high schools? DOE recommends placing students in Math for College Readiness who score within that range based on prior research studies.

14 Recently Asked Questions  5) Can we get a list of our students and their scores on the CPT in the last 2 years? A breakdown, yes, but not names and scores (FERPA).  6) Can a teacher pay and experience taking the CPT ? Yes, but nothing can be written down.  7) Is a formula sheet made available for the CPT ? No  8) Is a calculator allowed on the CPT ? No  9) Are there any CPT reviews available for a quick refresher before taking the test? Yes, at

15 Recently Asked Questions  10) ACT related questions: Are formula sheets allowed? No Are formula sheets allowed? No Are calculators allowed? What type? No Are calculators allowed? What type? No Are students instructed to put away all cell phones? ACT instructs students NOT to bring cell phones to the test. Are students instructed to put away all cell phones? ACT instructs students NOT to bring cell phones to the test.
