;27/34(Post is Read)is difficult to completely predict the quality of the students entering the doors,but measures can be put in place to try and weed out the lost causes early. Iknow that the school I work at has a policy to have as few zero credit students aspossible. Their focus is that if a student is going down that path to either try toturn them around, or at least convince them to drop their classes rather than failall of them. This way the output is not a student with no credits to show for it.This is very important when dealing with schools that earn federal funding asmost of those funds are allocated based on the performance of students.Thread:Question 18 NewillPost:RE: Question 18 NewillAuthor:Posted Date:December 21, 2015 11:06 PMStatus:Published(Post is Read)Kenneth,In our university the students are in cohorts so if they drop they have to wait foralmost a year to return. This makes it even more challenging to keep them inclass and pass with a 90%.LinLinda NewillThread:Question 18 NewillPost:RE: Question 18 NewillAuthor:Posted Date:January 4, 2016 11:16 PMStatus:PublishedGood points!I truly believe that just because you can memorize some facts or stats or whatyou read and get a great grade on a test does not mean that you will be a greatemployee for a company after graduation. You must be able to interact withyour fellow coworkers and be able to apply what you have learned in aproductive manner. I know some universities like a more hands on approachwith some of their classes to give their students a more realistic approach tobeing prepared for employment after graduation. I have had several classeshere atBellevueuniversity, both undergrad and grad, that has used some handson projects to allow students to get a better understanding of what they arelearning and why it is important to know and apply it to real life.Another way to improve which I did not hear was to perhaps improve the facultyJerimiah Burt

I am not saying that we have bad teachersbut perhaps their methods are out of date or they are not making a difference intheir student’s knowledge or awareness of what they are teaching. Securingthe best possible professors would definitely help with student’s involvementand preparedness into gaining profitable employment.Either way, an approach that helps students get a better understanding of howto apply what they have learned into real life is a better way than just learningwhat you have read and getting a good score on a test.
