6. ASEWU Report. None. 7. Administrative Report. M. Baldwin reported: a. He attended a meeting with the developmental Math working group and wanted to give the council an update. They are using ALEX which is a software tool for developmental Math and it has been so successful they have begun to use it as a placement tool. The students placement shows: 103 at 100%; 104 at 60%; 105 at 67%; and 106 at 0% because there was only one student. He stated he wonders if the placement numbers are a little too high. They believe they could place more students however the placement numbers are very restrictive right now. He stated that overall in 2008-09 the completion rate of students in MATH 103 was 41.5% and with the new strategy of Math 103A and Math 103B it improved to 43% however with the use of ALEX it is now 62.4%. They have used ALEX for two years so they need to have one more year to validate the results. He stated the only anomaly they have seen so far in the fall the success rate was lower than other quarters and they aren’t sure why. There is some indication that this is the success rate in the next class because they took the summer off and the time off hurt their success rate. A. Wetmore asked if a student can test in ALEX off campus and M. Baldwin stated it has to be proctored. E. Morgan: E. Morgan gave a demonstration of the curriculum management software, Leepfrog.
