POMONA – Freshmen who entered Cal Poly Pomona in fall 2005 were more prepared for college-level math compared to classes in previous years, according to a newly released report. However, about half of first-time students at the Pomona campus needed remedial classes in English, according to the proficiency report of new freshmen at California state universities. Incoming students must be ready for college-level work before they can enroll in classes at a CSU. Proficiency is measured by standardized tests, entry exams and placement tests. Students must reach proficiency levels in English and math in one year or withdraw. At Cal Poly Pomona, which admitted 3,156 freshmen in 2005, English proficiency fell from 51.5 percent in 2004 to 50.6 percent in 2005. Math proficiency rose from 70.9 percent in 2004 to 71.2 percent. “The numbers are not as high as we would like,” said Tomas Morales, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Cal Poly Pomona. “\ the proficiency report shows that everyone, all institutions and the university as a whole, is heading in the right direction, as modest as those numbers are.” Throughout the CSU system, English proficiency increased from 53 percent to 55 percent, and math proficiency rose from 63 percent to 64 percent from fall 2004 in fall 2005. The goal is to have 90 percent of incoming CSU freshmen ready for college-level work by 2007. Proficiency rates throughout the CSU system are lower than expected, said Gary Reichard, CSU’s executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer. English proficiency has remained almost constant over seven years – 53 percent in 1998 compared with 55 percent in 2005. The student body is becoming more diverse and includes many English-language learners, according to Reichard. In addition, there is greater access to state universities and the student population has doubled over the last 30 years, “bringing a larger range of student abilities,” Reichard said. Reichard said the Early Assessment Program should quickly improve levels of proficiency in first-time students. The Early Assessment Program tests high school juniors on their college-readiness. Morales said Cal Poly Pomona actively works with area high schools, encouraging students to take an extra math or English class during their senior year and recommending that students who need extra help take remedial classes the summer before their freshman year. The university’s goal, Morales said, is to reach a point at which no student needs to take remediation courses. The proficiency report also showed that remediation has steadily improved students’ proficiency levels after one year. At Cal Poly Pomona, 87 percent of freshmen who entered in fall 2004 were proficient in math and English after one year. That rate has improved from 84 percent in the previous freshmen class and from 79 percent in the freshmen class that enrolled in 1999. esther.chou@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2513last_img read more
