  1. SMART Math Jackson State Community College Jackson, Tennessee Redesigned Developmental Math Program Annual Enrollment in Developmental Math: 2200 Number of Sections: 71 Section Size: 30 Fully Implemented Fall Semester 2009 Goals: • Improve Student Success & Increase Learning • Prepare students for educational and career objectives – not just remediate high school deficiencies www.jscc.edu/smart-math SMART aster chieve urvive eview ransfer

  2. How We Got Started 12 modules replaced 3 traditional courses. To satisfy a module the overall grade must be at least 75%. Components of each module grade: Attendance 5% Notebooks 10% Homework 15% Post-Test (Proctored) 70%

  3. Why Modularize? • Mastery learning facilitated • Individual student requirements based on educational and career goals • Multiple exit options • Students can change schedule without interrupting learning • More frequent opportunities to successful completion • Student begins new semester with next required module

  4. Procedure for Modularization • Course competencies of the three traditional courses were separated into 12 clearly defined modules • Prerequisite modules were identified for success in • general education math courses • other college level courses • programs not requiring college level math • Curriculum Committee approved changes in Developmental Math requirements • Procedures were set up to advise students of their multi-exit options based on their career choice • Advisor training sessions were conducted

  5. Record Keeping • For which course does the student register? “Shell Courses” that do not designate modules DSPM 0891 Developmental Mathematics I DSPM 0892 Developmental Mathematics II DSPM 0893 Developmental Mathematics III • All new students enroll in DSPM 0891 • Student completes at least 4 modules (or all required if < 4) • Grade = Average of 4 highest modules scores • Students still needing to complete more modules enroll in DSPM 0892/DSPM 0893 • Table created in SOATEST/Banner to indicate modules completed for each student

  6. Redefining Faculty Roles Faculty are now facilitators and evaluators of student learning. Faculty guide each student’s study through developmental math. Faculty counsel students on their module requirements relative to their career goal. Faculty lead small group instruction on difficult topics. Faculty serve as tutors in SMART Math Center. Full time faculty mentor adjunct faculty.
