Bay College has been an Achieving the Dream leader college since 2012 and has worked diligently to enhance its course offerings and developmental education plan.
Hawkes Learning was implemented into Basic Algebra and Intermediate Algebra courses in Fall 2011 to allow students to benefit from the system’s mastery-based approach to learning and error-specific feedback.
The Math department has also introduced supplemental instructors and summer boot camps into its developmental education plan, and has conducted extensive research on student success in current and subsequent courses.
Bay College currently utilizes Hawkes as a supplement to lecture, working as an accountability and early alert tool for students. Hawkes Certify assignments are used as mandatory homework, accounting for 20% of the student’s final course grade.
The department has observed the strong positive influence that Hawkes Certify assignment completion has on student pass rates, and has seen a positive correlation when looking at students’ Hawkes completion rates and their final grades in the course.
