QEP Meeting Minutes
March 11, 2013

Dr. Oldham, Dr. Cooper, and Dr. Mynatt joined the committee for this meeting to give feedback on the first draft of the QEP document:

  • There should be a scaffolding statement before Goal 2
  • Should tie the discipline-specific outcome to the HERI survey need
  • Reporting structure – why report to IQ Council?  Should the WC director serve on the IQ Council?
  • Number of staff – director and 4 FT staff?
  • Q – How many students will be going to the WC the 1styear”
    • 45-80/week (Coley)
    • ENGL 1312 – 630 sessions/semester
    • ENGL 1321 – 20 sections/semester at 24 students each = 440 students
    • Writing Emphasis = 15 students/course
    • This adds up to around 200 students/week or 2580 sessions per ~13 weeks.  This does not include walk-in traffic.  Each session is about 30-45 minutes each.
    • We are budgeting ~140 hours/week for peer tutors.
    • This also does not include the time spent working with faculty in their courses.
    • Q – are required visits to WC affecting even adjuncts?  Yes.
    • Transfer students – 1/3 of freshmen and 63% of our students.  We will hit the transfer students in the gap assessment and WE courses.
    • We are not tracking individual students.  The data is a collective.
    • NOTE:  At Hardin-Simmons, there is a barrier exam with writing for juniors.
