Math 190 Course Assessment Area
The Math 190 course is the first course in the developmental math series of courses. Students enter this course by taking the Math Accuplacer Placement test. Because this is the first course in the series, students by default end up in this course. Therefore, students taking this course come at varied math levels. Because the grade levels are varied, instructors have to focus on a key set of skills mentioned in the course outline. These skills are outlined in the student learning outcomes.
A pretest was conducted at the beginning of the Spring 2012 semester. Towards the end of the semester, a different form of the same test was used to conduct a post-test.
