Increasing Success Rates for Developmental Math Students

Jacksonville State University (JSU)  is a regional university serving northeast Alabama on a 459-acre campus with 59 buildings and multiple locations. Many of their students are low-income, from rural areas, and are first generation college students.

In recent years, JSU has seen an increased enrollment in developmental mathematics classes and poor success rates, so they were looking for ways to help their students do better. They joined the NROC Developmental Math pilot in August 2011 with plans to use the program as a supplement to existing curriculum materials.
