Three Classroom Challenges and Solutions
Knowing What Your Students Don’t Know
“We have just implemented our own pre-course assessment this semester. We are using generic problems...and requiring students who perform poorly to attend a workshop. It would be nice if these materials were already prepared for us.”
Jennifer Greenwood — Carroll Community College
MindTap offers the best pre-course assessment available. This assessment is a low-stakes environment that motivates your students to improve their prerequisite skills on their own time, arriving to class as prepared as possible.
Keeping Track of Due Dates
“Currently, my students...just see a list of assignments with due dates, these are easily overlooked and I am constantly getting extension requests with the comments ‘I didn't realize it was due on Friday,’ for example.”
Catherine Lane — University of Cincinnati: Clermont College
The Learning Path mirrors your weekly or topic-driven syllabus and provides your students with a clear understanding of what to do and when, allowing you to keep your class on schedule.
Improving Focus on Required Materials
“I have had students who spend hours going over problems from other resources like Khan Academy instead of reading the text, etc. Then they run out of time to do their...homework.”
Mary Legner — Riverside City College
