Quantitative Reasoning

Quantitative Reasoning

The General Education Outcome for Quantitative Reasoning is students will be able to apply mathematical analysis of data to make connections, draw conclusions and solve problems. Three course-level outcomes are mapped to quantitative reasoning in four courses and assessed every other year. Figure 4 represent the aggregated percentage of course-level targets that were met and not met in 2015-2016.

Interventions in response to quantitative reasoning results

The Mathematics and Statistics department implemented: 1) the teaching method developed through the GA funded research on how to handle large size classes and increase the teaching effectiveness overall; 2) Opened and operated a new MATH Learning (walk in tutoring) Center with an on-site supervisor. Figure 5 represents the aggregated percentage of course-level targets following the changes implemented prior to the 2017 collection cycle.
