Jacksonville State University
David Thornton, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Jan Case, Distinguished Professor of Mathematics, and Courtney Peppers, Director of Learning Services authored an article detailing Jacksonville State University's transition to low-stakes placement for the Journal of National College Testing Association.
From the article:
Students at the public four-year institution Jacksonville State University were underprepared for college math and were stalled by a repetitive cycle of failure with remedial math courses and discontinuity from being sent back to the beginning the following semester without regard for academic progress. By replacing the classic high-stakes testing and traditional course structure with a simple, well-mapped placement and study path model, JSU students are moving on to their credit-bearing math courses in less time, at lower cost, and with significantly higher success rates in their subsequent math courses.
