For the last eight years, Navarro College has offered developmental math and college algebra in multiple formats‐‐traditional, online, hybrid, and modular. Before choosing Hawkes, Navarro evaluated two different software programs based on their ability to meet the needs of the students and instructors. Flexibility was a key factor in the department’s decision to use Hawkes. In this talk, the presenters will discuss how Navarro is using Hawkes to help meet state and accreditation (SACS) requirements. Specifically, this webinar will highlight success rates and data while explaining how the Hawkes Grade Book reports can be used to measure student learning outcomes.
