Summary: At a private Catholic college in the Midwest, an assessment plan was developed to assess the effectiveness of introductory courses taken by students to fulfill a basic mathematical competency requirement. An attitude survey was developed to give us information regarding the impact of mathematics anxiety and other affective factors on students' mathematical skills. A subset of the mathematics competency examination was selected and administered after students completed a remedial mathematics course that fulfilled the college mathematics competency requirement. The results were compared to students' original responses to see if there was any improvement.
