The LSU Flagship Agenda: 

The LSU Flagship Agenda Objective 1. Increase research productivity in support of long-term economic development. Actions: 1. Add a minimum of 150 faculty, provide for appropriate support staff, and compensate all faculty and staff competitively with LSU peers.

LSU Precalculus Program Fall 2003 : 

LSU Precalculus Program Fall 2003 College Algebra (3 cr. hr.) 4700 students per year Precalculus (5 cr. hr.) 750 students per year All courses taught in sections of 40 students each with 3 hours per week or 5 hours per week of lecture and paper assessments… Cost per student = $110

R2R Pilot Spring 2005: 

R2R Pilot Spring 2005 7 sections -- 196 students 1 required hour a week in a Focus Group (FG) of 40 students 2 required hours a week in a 40-seat Learning Lab (LL) Instructor or TA to present and review main ideas and provide overall guidance for students MyMathLab (MML) for tutorials and assessment Lab staffed with instructors, math TAs, and undergraduate math majors for 20 hours each week University testing center for proctored, CBTs with no partial credit Paper final exam

R2R Pilot Spring 2005 Personnel/Cost Reduction: 

R2R Pilot Spring 2005 Personnel/Cost Reduction 2 FG and 4 hours in LL = 3 cr. hr. One instructor can teach twice as many students. Administrative costs increase – redesign coordinator, data manager, and undergraduate tutors … C(x) = .5x + RC + DM + UT Cost per student = $194

R2R Pilot Spring 2005 Lessons Learned: 

R2R Pilot Spring 2005 Lessons Learned Continue to use rolling deadlines but change quiz due date to be due the night before the FG rather than the night of the FG. Prepare Task Lists by testing units rather than by sections. Schedule fixed make-up date for major tests two days after the end of the testing cycle rather than one day. Make participation grade 5% of final grade rather than bonus. Prepare students for paper final exam at each FG by giving old exam question for participation grade. Assign partial credit for multipart problems on tests and quizzes. Weight individual items on tests to reflect difficulty level of questions.
