The College Algebra Emporium was piloted in Fall 2011. Since then, the program has been assessed on an annual basis with modifications made where appropriate to improve its effectiveness. Evidence of the program’s success is provided in the chart below (MATH 1111 College Algebra), which shows increases in ABs and declines in DFWs and Ws across the four years.
Modifications made since 2012 continue to have a positive effect on student success, and no additional changes were made in AY 14-15. The Department of Mathematics continues to monitor all aspects of the Emporium Model’s delivery.
