"[O]ur conclusion is that the PLTL model is boosting the performance of the PLTL student to a level almost comparable to their counterparts in the traditional course even though the PLTL students are "at risk" based on their math preparation that has been known to be a predictor for success in general chemistry (Sarquis & Detchon)."

Selected Adapters:

  • Jerry L. Sarquis
    Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry
    Miami University

  • Joel C. Detchon

An Assessment Essay:

  • The PLTL Experience at Miami University
    - Jerry L. Sarquis, Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry - Miami University
    - Joel C. Detchon, Graduate Student - Miami University
    One instructor decides to implement PLTL to assist "at-risk" students in a general chemistry course. Assessment of this course demonstrates that PLTL improves the performance of these "at-risk" students. This essay also provides an example of successful use of the SALG website.
