Roane State reviews each student’s academic strengths and weaknesses in the areas of mathematics, reading, and writing based upon valid ACT or COMPASS subject test scores. Learning support provides a means of improving an entering student’s skills to the level necessary for college courses.
The Learning Support Placement Chart shows which, if any, learning support co-requisite courses will be required in addition to college-level courses.
Beginning in the summer of 2015 for ENGL 0891/0892, READ 0891/0892 and fall of 2015 for MATH 0891/0892, these courses will no longer be offered in their current form. All students needing learning support will be required to sign up for one of the new co-requisite versions of math, reading or writing learning support.
If you are currently enrolled in a math learning support course and do not complete the mandatory competencies by the end of summer semester you must enroll into one of the new co-requisite sections of MATH 0530/1530 starting in the fall of 2015. For math learning support, none of the work completed the previous semesters will carry over.
If you have completed all required competencies, the changes will not affect you. You may enroll into any college level course that had a learning support prerequisite.
Taking the diagnostic exams for either math, reading or writing learning support will allow you the opportunity to test out of part or all of your learning support classes. The diagnotic exams are not mandatory, but they are highly recommended.
You must be registered in a Learning Support class to be able to take the diagnostic exam. The diagnostic is not available to students registered in a RODP course. The diagnostic exam is designed to assess a student’s abilities in the material that is covered within each course.
Learning Support Diagnostic Exams are available only through the Testing Centers:
Testing begins promply at the times that are posted. Read the Testing Centers Rules concerning proper identification and a listing of prohibited items during testing prior to arrival.
No course credit is given for testing out of any portion of learning support.
Students enrolled in MATH 0891, 0892 or 1000 are required to take their course exams at one of the labs listed on the Open Testing Schedule.
Each lab is comprised of multiple desktop workstations. Faculty, staff and tutors are available to assist the students during normal hours. For answers to any questions or concerns feel free to contact us at:
Students are helped by their instructors and staff members in the Learning Support Lab. The Learning Center and the Learning Center Online are two great sources for a little extra help. The Learning Center is available to all students free of charge. If you need help understanding your assignment or course content, tutors are available. The Learning Center Online is listed on your Momentum page under Learning Resources. There, you can find study guides, helpful websites, and discussion boards where you can leave questions that will be answered by one of the many tutors.
