What are the outcomes?
By the end of the meeting attendees will:
  • Recode all basic skills course levels using the rubrics to determine the appropriate CB 21 code.
  • Evaluate the coding of all basic skills and non-degree-level courses for their college and its programs.
  • Analyze information from other colleges about their curriculum coding and philosophies in order to expand our collective understanding of basic skills statewide.
  • Synthesize the importance of coding, curriculum and student pathways into a workable strategy targeting student success.
What should you bring?
  1. Each team should bring a spreadsheet of all the courses coded as basic skills, including any courses not coded as basic skills that are below transfer. The spreadsheet should include the current coding for each course in CB04 (Degree Applicability), CB 05 (transfer status), CB 08 (Basic Skills Status), CB 21 (Level prior to transfer).
  2. Sample curriculum documents from math, reading, ESL and English courses prior to transfer.
