At Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, the ABLE/GED program offers a "Math Boost" free non-credit 8-week course, 2 hours a day/four days a week.  At the end of the course, students are able to re-take the COMPASS.  The goal is for them to test into our second-level of dev ed math (the first level will currently accept those with "scores as low as 1").

Subject: Opportunities for Students with Low Placement Scores

Good morning, everyone,

I am currently at an institution that does not have floor scores, which means that students with COMPASS placement scores as low as 1 in math, reading, and/or writing are able to enroll in courses. As a result the lack of success that these students typically experience, we are in the process of looking at what programs we have available for students to pursue successfully and transition into the workforce.

If you institution does not have floor scores, what interventions (in addition to dev ed courses, supplemental instruction, and/or tutoring) do you have for low-scoring students? What academic program, such as certificates, are they able to pursue?

Thanks in advance for your input,
Sarena
