The Maths Ready program which includes the Maths Ready quiz with associated
follow up assistance has developed from a third party resource into an in-house
diagnostic tool fully integrated into the online learning management system. The
Study and Learning Centre has managed and re-established this program to
identify first year undergraduate students most in need of mathematics study
support within priority courses and provided study support interventions.

The success of support interventions were measured by a comparison of the final
grades of students who were most in need of study support. Those that accessed
the support provided showed a significantly higher difference in final grades
than those not accessing support.
