The following are questions frequently asked by Academic Foundations Reading students regarding the Academic Foundations Reading Program. If you have additional questions, please contact the Reading Area Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
When am I ready for an objective or text chapter test? When a student has completed all of the work on a particular objective of his/her course, it is highly recommended to take a practice test(s) in the classroom, the LRC or on the WWW site.
Why can't I just skip chapters and take the final exam? To receive credit for the course the student is required to show a score of 80% or better on mastery tests for most objectives listed in the syllabus. In addition the student is required to demonstrate college reading level proficiency on a standardized final reading comprehension test. There is a direct connection between successfully completing learning objectives and developing the comprehension required to pass the final reading test.
What is the Reading Area attendance policy? Do I have to come to class or can I just come in when I'm ready to take a test? Students are expected to attend all class sessions. Excessive absences and work not completed may affect a student's ability to complete a course. Attendance may also effect a student's financial aid and/or VA benefits. Attendance in classes is kept according to federal guidelines. If a student is enrolled in Sinclair's Electronic College class attendance is not required. A student is reported as not attending, however, if no work has been completed by the end of the 4th week of the quarter.
