Tech Tip: Learning Catalytics – A new take on Student Response Systems | Academic Technology & Innovation Group

April 15, 2014

students who answered incorrectly can be grouped with students who answered the question correctly. Learning Catalytics generates these matches automatically and then sends instructions to individual users on how to form groups. It might send an instruction to a student’s device saying, “Discuss your answer with Guthrie Andres, behind you.” After discussing, students can submit a second round of responses to show changes in understanding. After the professor closes a question, students can send a message to the professor if they still don’t understand.

These grouping features are notable because they make Learning Catalytics more than a simple response system. This is a system for managing student interactions, monitoring student understanding, and teaching using peer interaction.

#2. Maximum Degree Unit limits

Financial aid recipients are monitored for the length of time needed to complete their degreeby measuring their total units completed. Undergraduate students will be eligible to receive financial aid only until they receive a degree or earn a maximum of 175 semester units. Graduate students are eligible to receive financial aid only until they earn their degree or earn 75 semester units. Students who change their minors/majors, who are pursuing double minors/majors, or who are attempting second baccalaureates will be held to the same maximum time frame.

The Office of Student Financial Aid will attempt to notify a student when it appears that he or she will exceed the unit maximum. Unless a student can provide information, which would justify why the degree hasnot been granted, his or her financial aid will be canceled.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeals

Students who fail one or more of the SAP requirements mentioned in #1 or #2 must appeal to theSatisfactory Academic Progress Appeals Committee (SAPAC). The required paperwork is available inthe Office of Student Financial Aid.

All financial aid recipients should speak to a financial aid counselor to discuss the impactof any proposed changes in enrollment such as dropping a course, repeating a course, or withdrawingfrom the University. Any of these changes may affect his/her satisfactory academic progress andfuture eligibility for financial aid.

An author page can feature custom content such as:

    The author bio.
    Author photograph/Gravatar.
    Twitter address.
    Facebook address.
    LinkedIn address.
    Twitter stream.
    Feed stream from their own blog(s).
    Counts of the number of posts.
    Links to a contact page or an actual contact form.
    A list of categories their posts are in.
