Student-Paced Developmental Math
WebAssign’s new course model gives students a pathway to success.
Did you know developmental math courses are taught at 99% of two-year colleges and 75% of four-year public universities? Students everywhere are entering college without the fundamental math skills necessary to succeed in college-level mathematics. WebAssign is addressing this growing need for an effective developmental math solution by designing a new student-paced course. Capitalizing on the WebAssign principles of instant feedback and constant assessment, our new course model fosters learning in a student-friendly environment, putting learning resources at students’ fingertips, and guiding them along a pathway to concept mastery.
Personalized Learning Path
Each module includes a diagnostic test that creates a personalized learning path by identifying which concepts a student has mastered and where he or she needs to focus more attention. Since students are not forced to review concepts they already know, they are more likely to stay engaged as they are guided to the next progressive step in the learning process. Our individualized, customized student experience limits frustration and math anxiety.
Multiple Learning Resources
Our goal is to support all learning styles by providing a wide variety of engaging and accessible resources to give each student the autonomy to decide what best meets his or her study needs. Content is organized into easy-to-digest learning modules that mirrors the way you would teach a class, starting with the basics and moving to conceptual understanding. Each module offers videos, an eBook, vocabulary drills, and step-by-step tutorials that tie directly to the learning objectives.
Students Can Easily Track Progress
Students work through modules at their own pace, but are encouraged to stay on track to course completion with a detailed progress chart. In addition to seeing how far they have progressed, students can view a summary of time spent on course. A display of recent accomplishments is designed to motivate students to keep progressing and an overview of the learning pathway informs students where they stand overall in the course.
Instant Feedback on Practice Problems
Active learning is the key to concept mastery so our learner-centered approach focuses on practicing math problems with constant constructive feedback and access to learning resources for just-in-time support. Our practice area reduces math anxiety by giving students a safe environment to make mistakes and learn from them.
Quickly Identify Struggling Students
The faculty dashboard provides powerful, real-time analytics that give you overview of your students’ progress in the course. You can easily pinpoint students who may be struggling and reach out to them directly to provide encouragement or guidance before they get too far behind.
