At-Risk students at Bay de Noc community College received a number of services to bolster their opportunity for success during the 2005-6 year. As part of the enrollment process they were tested for appropriate placement in math and English classes. Those requiring remedial writing received their instruction in smaller-than-normal classes, so they could receive more individual assistance in their writing development.
Students who needed additional assistance and guidance in their studies utilized peer tutors, the MOIS career guidance services, reading testing, counseling, and career testing/guidance services. These services were provided on both the Escanaba and Iron Mountain campuses and were highly successful.

Sometimes academic advisors needed to advise students to commit a semester to academic skills building in the KCC developmental program before beginning college-level work or to take a combination of developmental courses along with college-level courses. The academic advisors referred many at risk students and students with disabilities to the Special Populations program, the Student Support Services program, or the Tutoring Coordinator for academic assistance and/or academic accommodations.

At Mid Michigan Community College, our primary ambition is to prepare remedial students for college. Changes in both the English and Math areas include the English 056 and 057 collaborative groups and English 101 and 110 have added reading components that will support student’s needs. Hybrid positions are hired that focus on remedial classes and ASC remedial work. Our Math Lab classes moved to a more student friendly format. Not only are students given the choice to take Math 101 and 104 in an open lab setting, but they now have the opportunity to take these classes in two components with collaborative groups of 8 to 10 students. This new format has been so successful that we continually add more sections each semester. Because of the lack of basic skill levels in several areas, the ASC offers several drop-in tutorial services: Math, Computer Sciences, Biology, and Accounting. We have ...

The primary initiative for this year was to address the increasing underpreparedness of entering students. The funding provided additional personnel: 1)to create greater awareness of the academic assistance services available and 2)to focus primary assistance on increasing organizational, study and testing skills in addition to addressing the content deficiencies.

In addition to this initiative, the majority of the At-Risk funding was used to support the tutoring, supplemental instruction and First Steps program, as well as the counseling/disability services.

3. Summary of Accomplishments (Limit of 10 lines)

Due to a series of local manufacturing layoffs in the past year, MCC has experienced a significant enrollment increase as displaced workers return to school for re-training. The vast majority of these displaced workers enter as At-risk students in need of both developmental classes and extensive tutoring. To meet this need, nearly all At-Risk dollars were used to pay for tutors and adjunct instructors in the developmental program, while the college general fund paid for most testing supplies. Although the number of At-risk students increased last year, we were able to maintain fairly normal completion rates by offering more face-to-face course sections and adding personnel in the Developmental Lab.

Faculty have taken the college’s five-credit, five-contact hour developmental math course and have separated it into five one-credit, one contact hours modules. Using this concept, a team of faculty and staff have worked together to develop a set of Math Module offerings that allow students who may not achieve competency in a module to repeat that module up to two times without penalty to their financial aid. The success rate of students taking all five modules has increased dramatically in the three years that the project has been piloted. Two faculty teaching a total of 24 sections, provide 64 contact hours of increasingly individualized instruction to students as they progress through the modules.

The Math Module Project Team continues to work with Orbro, a software

After a review of assessment scores and cut-offs, there will be adjustments to the cut-off scores in mathematics. In addition, ESL cut scores have been revised and the sequence has changed from 3 to 4 levels. The addition of a full-time ESL coordinator/instructor has led to increased collaboration with Academic Support Advisors and the Testing Center. This has led to more consistent student placement and better monitoring of proper course sequencing. Reading cut scores and ACT cut scores have been revised to align with the ACT recentering and current recommendations.
The college has been reviewing courses for which College Reading is a prerequisite resulting in more students taking read in the first or second semester as is appropriate.

To help strengthen the existing academic support activities for the at-risk program at WCCCD, an open door institute, several initiatives were added: peer mentoring, group tutorials and specialized student support workshops.
Through the peer mentoring program, at-risk students are paired with “more experienced” WCCCD students to help them both academically and socially achieve academic success throughout the semester. Students become more aware of the campus, it’s resources and support services offered as well as the college’s culture and communities.
To help maximize the student’s learning opportunities, group tutorial sessions have been added. Here students learn not only from their instructors but from
