At long last, we’ve analyzed the first level data and have some encouraging results to share regarding our experiment with the MOOC.
We had an 18.4% completion/success rate – over double the national average for MOOCs. We reached our target audience, with many high school students, as well as many adults with some college credit. About a quarter of MOOC participants were enrolled in a degree program of some sort – the majority at the associate’s degree level.
How did it work out for Tri-C students? Of the Tri-C students who took a pre- and post-test (a very small sample size of 13!), over 75% either improved their dev ed course placement or tested out of developmental math entirely – a fantastic finding, as the course itself does not cover content designed to take a student to college-level math!
