P-MOPS paper HCS 100-19 April 18, 2016 By: Dan Ellis, Daniel Coffroth, Nick Benton, Colby Conway, Taylor Deal, Annabell Dow, Megan Frederick Graduating on Time Majority of students now a days take longer than 4 years to get a bachelor’s degree. So this group decided this was a good problem to take a look at and find solutions to help everyone out. We took steps from the P-mops model to find out which solutions work out best. This model helped us immensely and we came up with quite a few solutions to help people graduate on time. The P-MOPS model has 5 steps in the process to help people find solutions to their problems. The first step you get a problem that you want to be solved. After that you pick some solutions out that you think might work out well for you. Then you evaluate each solution to see what the outcomes could be. The 4 th step after those first 3 is you all find a consensus on what solutions you want to do. The final step is you go out and implement those for the desired outcome. We came up with a few solutions that will help you to graduate on time and start off with meeting with your advisor. Meeting with your advisor can be one of the most important things you can do to make sure you are on track to graduate with whatever degree you are pursuing. They are paid to be there specifically to help you out with this problem. Your advisors are the most knowledge about what classes you need and when to take them. Along those lines they know all about class requirements. This can cause a lot of issues for students when they go to sign up for a class but then can’t get in because they didn’t complete the prerequisite. You have to meet these advisors as well so you can get your pin number to be able to sign up for classes. This is a solution isn’t just a need but a must to graduate on time. The degree audit can be a helpful tool as well. Degree audit can be found on your myship portal under academics. It shows all the classes you need to complete your degree as well as what grades you

got in each class you completed. It can also show you what classes you have signed up for this semester and the following one if you have picked those classes already. It can show your GPA as an overall and just in your major along with a what if scenario where you can put in your expected grades in the rest of your classes to see the calculated GPA if those are what you got in those classes. Overall it is a good tool to see what you have completed so far and a good look into the future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
