Per the NFA Contract, Article 10, TMCC is announcing to all eligible Academic and Administrative faculty that a need exists for a CTM and SKE Exit Exam Development Committee (4 positions).
January 18, 2019
This committee of four (4) members will be selected to create a common final exam for students preparing to complete SKC 80 or CTM 86. This final exam will be comprised of basic arithmetic content covered in SKC 80 and CTM 86 courses. The final exam content will represent the prerequisite material needed to enroll in and successfully complete Math 95. This exit exam will replace re-taking the Accuplacer at the end of the course. The Accuplacer test currently serves as the exit exam for these courses even though it is designed as a placement test and not a post-assessment.
The committee of four will include a member with CTM teaching experience, a member with SKC teaching experience, and at least one member of the Math Department with developmental math teaching experience.
