History
Starting in 2001 the state of
Wyoming looked at the transition rate of GED graduates entering college.
It was noted that successful GED math students, who were entering college
were doing poorly on the colleges' math entrance exam, COMPASS, thus
placing these students into Arithmetic Skills classes. This class covers
decimals, fractions, percents, graphs, measurement, real numbers and
introduction to geometry and algebra. Skills that students mastered during
GED instruction. This trend was frustrating to students as well has GED
instructors. Three pilot sites: Casper Community College, Northern Wyoming
Community College District and Western Wyoming Community College, with the
guidance from the State Director Karen RossMilmont investigated ways to
improve GED graduate COMPASS scores. Areas investigated included:
calculator drills, computerized testing, stress management, test taking
skills and dealing with math anxiety.
