Title: Finding the Best Fit Pathway for Developmental Math Students
Abstract: The Best Fit Project combines the benefits of a traditional classroom format with the computer-mediated classroom (redesign). Instead of relying on students to "self-select" the best learning environment for themselves when registering for classes; instructors work with and assess students for three weeks, and then guide students into the classroom format which they believe is the best fit for each student to be successful and retained. Logistics and four semesters of results will be discussed.
