ab: 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
studentsâ€™ 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 studentsâ€™
original responses to see if there was any improvement.
