Through the Mount Desert Island Water Quality Coalition (MDIWQC), students participate in the Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) Volunteer Marine Biotoxin Monitoring Program, providing a first-alert system to the DMR for possible incoming red tide. In addition to identifying red tide types of phytoplankton, they also monitor other indicators of water quality, such as salinity, dissolved oxygen, tide stage, rainfall, and transparency. Students also bring informational brochures to the town pier to educate their community about red tide and about their volunteer monitoring efforts. The data they collect are entered into the MDIWQC on-line community database and submitted to the DMR, who uses the information to help inform red tide resource management decisions.

Room: Science Literacy and Proficiency Expectations of a Regional Public University for Entering Freshman: A tale from the trenches in promoting transparency and communication between high school and higher education. Session: 6 Room: RLC 201 Presenters: Grades: 9-12 & students

Content:

Professional Development

Robert Sanford, University of Southern Maine Lynn Miller, University of Southern Maine The University of Southern Maine has been working on the issue of transparency for a while now. But what have we learned? We admit students, creating the premise that we recognize their ability and readiness to perform college-level work. What constitutes ability for the sciences? What happens when we tell them they did not achieve proficiency; then test them; then place them in remedial courses or in 100-level courses often taught by part-timers? We lose too, too many of them. With a 6 year graduation rate for full time traditional age students of 30%, there is much to be done. How do we
17

meet our civic duty of providing accessibility and opportunity by paving the way for success in life through success in college? Come join this conversation about how to improve the transition from high school to college by promoting transparence of expectation, ability, and process.
