Establishing the Course: 1. Submit the attached “Application to Teach College Now” to Rich Horton, LBCC College Now Coordinator. 2. Submit course information to Rob Lewis, College Now Math Liaison. Please use the attached “Summary of Course Content Form”, and include: Name of the Linn-Benton course and the matching high school course(s) for which students will be receiving concurrent credit Text book title and author Indicate how your course(s) matches the LBCC Math Department’s Course Requirements (attached) Summary of course content in calendar format Test copies and approximate evaluation schedules Grading criteria Printed name and signature of the participating teacher Note: Once these materials are in place they should be updated only as necessary, such as a change in instructors, new textbooks, or significant shifts in tests or grading criteria. 3. Complete the attached “Course Articulation Memorandum of Understanding” and send to Rob Lewis. B. Enrolling Students in College Now 1. Request students enroll in the College Now program, as soon as possible, by completing the “College Now Participation Form” and paying a “one-time” fee of $25. Once enrolled, students may receive credit through the College Now program for any number of courses in any number of subject areas all through high school without paying additional fees. 2. Computer Placement Test (CPT), required only for Mth 243, Statistics if the student does not have College Now credit in Mth 111, College Algebra. The CPT score must place the student into any course above Mth 111. CPT testing is available at all area high schools and at LBCC main campus and centers. C. Registering Students and Submitting Grades 1. Before the term deadline, the instructor should submit the “College Now Registration Request/Class Roster Form” form (attached) to Rich Horton. Please list students with their SSN. If a SSN is not available please provide their full legal name with birth date. Students listed should be: Planning to complete their course work and receive college credit that term; Have submitted a College Now Participation Form with the $25 fee. Note: Mth 243 Instructors. Please attach each student’s CPT Results Report. 2. When students are near the end of their course work, the instructor should administer and evaluate each student for basic proficiency using the LBCC math departments final exam. Only students who pass the exam (70% or higher) may receive college credit for the course. It is at the instructor’s discretion as to whether to use LBCC’s exam or not in determining the student’s grade. 3. At the end of the term a “grade sheet” for recording each student’s final letter grade will be sent to each instructor. Please complete the “grade sheet” (electronic copy is fine) and return to Rich Horton. 4. Send all graded exams to Rob Lewis.
