The math department has put together tutorial material on D2L.
An account has been established for you on D2L and the information may be found in the course titled CAAP Math Review. This material will be the most useful if you dedicate a couple of hours per week from now until your testing date. You can access D2L by directing your browser to: https://d2l.sdbor.edu/. If you have technical problems with D2L, please email Terry.Hupp@BHSU.edu. For issues regarding the math content or specific review questions please email Daniel.Swenson@BHSU.edu, and we will try to resolve any problems. If you have problems with the curriculum within the course, please contact Dr. Daniel Swenson.
Students must complete two steps if they fail one or more sections of the test: first, they must meet with a designated academic advisor “to create, in collaboration with the academic advisor, and follow a development plan for remediation to be completed within one calendar year.” Second, they must retake the failed portion(s) of the exam.
Students are allowed up to two retakes for each failed section of the exam. Retakes occur during designated CAAP testing days during fall and spring semester, and students retake only the failed portions of the exam.
Following the results of the exam, students will receive a letter that discloses test results and lists advisor contact information if students are required to complete a developmental plan.
· What happens if I don’t pass my final retake?
Students who completed the maximum number of retakes (2) and who successfully complete a developmental plan, as required, have sixty (60) calendar days from the date of their final retest opportunity to provide written notification of their intent to appeal (for certification of proficiency using alternative methods) to the Vice President for Academic Affairs at the institution where they are enrolled as degree seeking. Students who fail to provide written notification of their intent to appeal within the specified time frame may only be readmitted if they are able to show evidence of satisfactory performance on the proficiency exam.
Students who fail to complete the required number of retakes and a developmental plan will be suspended from classes at any Regental university until they can successfully pass the proficiency exam. Because the exam is only administered once during fall and spring semester, respectively, the minimum length of suspension is one semester. Students who have completed all coursework will be denied graduation until they can successfully pass the exam.
For help with developing a development plan for remediation, please contact the following:
For science, contact Dr. Abigail Domagall — Assistant Professor, Geology
For math, contact Kristel Ehrhardt — Instructor, Mathematics
For writing, contact Kaija Swisher — Adj. Instructor, English
For reading, contact Mary Cooper — Instructor, Reading
You can get a deferral form on-line here Deferment Form. You will need to include a brief, signed letter explaining your situation. If you are requesting a deferral due to a funeral a funeral bulletin or obituary will need to be attached. If you are under a doctor's care a doctor's note will need to be attached. If you are called to military duty a copy of your orders will need to be attached. The deferral needs to be reviewed and signed by your advisor before it is returned to the Academic Affairs office. Please make every effort possible to get your deferral in before the testing dates, so that if it is denied you can still attend a testing session. If the deferral is not approved by the end of the testing period you will have a hold put on your account (which will be removed once the deferral is approved) and receive a "did not test" letter. Otherwise, the last day deferrals are accepted is the last day of finals at 5pm. You are only allowed one deferral during your academic career.
