As part of broader efforts to redesign developmental education and refine placement practices at Jacksonville State University (AL), learn how EdReady is being used to diagnose gaps and develop mastery of prerequisite math concepts required for success in targeted college-level math courses including: Exploring Mathematics, Finite Mathematics, and Precalculus College Algebra.
Early data is promising for this approach as an alternative to traditional placement exams, which have not always been proven to be accurate predictors of student success.
We will also explore JSU’s hybrid instruction model for “Fast Forward Algebra” offering online study and face-to-face review to bring students up-to-speed.
