Tips to Help Lower DFW Rates - Part 3

A DFW rate is the rate at with students receive D-grades, F-grades, or Withdrawals in courses. Some Colleges and Universities are now using this data in regards to budget and performance reviews. More now than ever are these rates something to be looked at, and unfortunately, these rates are on the rise.

Although there are many reasons students withdraw from courses, faculty members can really only control their side of the story. One way faculty members can help lower their course DFW rates is by providing supplemental instruction. Not every student has the courage to ask questions during class or the time to stop by during office hours, to get the instruction they need. Maybe they are feeling embarrassed that they don’t know certain software applications or are feeling less tech savvy then their classmates. Regardless, by providing a way for students to gather the information they need, on their own time, can help improve the likelihood of them completing the course. On the flip side of this, there are also students that want to go above and beyond the intended course content, and are always looking for opportunities to dive deeper and learn more. Supplemental instruction can also help those students exceed.

Meet Our eLearning Developers: Heather Slee

Continuing the series introducing you to our eLearning Contributor team, we'd like you to meet Heather Slee.

In addition to being an Atomic Learning eLearning content developer, Heather is also an author of YA fiction.

When asked what drew her to want to create training, Heather said "I’ve wanted to teach ever since I was little and would stand in front of my classroom of stuffed animals teaching them about helping verbs. (Yeah. I’m a dork.)"

Although there are many reasons students withdraw from courses, faculty members can really only control their side of the story. One way faculty members can help reach ALL of their students, is to make it as easy as possible for students to know the basics.  Not all students come into a course with the same knowledge or skills set, and changing your curriculum to go over basics for a smaller segment of students isn’t always an option.  Not only would that slow down the course, but it also hinders those students who would otherwise excel. By providing students that are struggling with tailored coursework, it allows those students to more easily advance along at the same level of other students.
