Tennessee Board of Regents Co-Requisite Remediation Model Produces Giant Leaps in Student Success in Math and English

 

Tennessee Board of RegentsNashville, TN – A new approach to remediation is dramatically increasing the number of students successfully completing their first college-level English and math courses at colleges and universities in the Tennessee Board of Regents system.

Known as a “co-requisite” approach, the new model places students in supplemental learning support classes while also enrolling them in their first credit-bearing courses. In a 2014 pilot program conducted at nine of the state’s 13 community colleges, the system saw completion rates for college math jump from 12 percent to 61 percent, and from 31 to 64 percent for English.

Nashville Zoo Hatches Historic Hellbender

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – On October 11th, 2015, the Zoo was successful in hatching an eastern hellbender that was the result of an egg being artificially fertilized with cryopreserved sperm; an achievement that had only been successful once before in an internal fertilizing tiger salamander in 2014. Moreover, this hellbender is the first externally fertilizing salamander to be produced utilizing cryopreserved sperm.

“It’s a pretty big deal for the conservation of this species and all amphibians,” said McGinnity. “This accomplishment means we can collect and preserve milt (seminal fluid containing sperm) from wild populations without removing hellbenders from their environment. Cryopreserved sperm may remain viable for hundreds to thousands of years when kept at ultra-low temperatures with liquid nitrogen. ”
