The data gathered confirmed the need for academic enrichment and illustrated where the students were struggling in both Writing and Math. Future data should also include grade equivalency to represent a more complex performance matrix.
We are currently looking to expand the program to two weeks. With the addition of the second week students will gain additional academic engagement with OU professors, staff and students; remediation and practice, academic games, etc.
Finally, as a result of the participation from the Math Department in the summer program, Professor Ogumyemi has continued his relationship with CMI during the academic year by providing weekly math tutoring in the CMI office to all CORE participants taking Math.
