The Alarming Reality of Education and College Athletes
Posted on 13 January 2014 by digitalsportsnews
Are your athletes ready for college?
Last week, the CNN article “Some college athletes play like adults, read like 5th-graders”, shed a painfully accurate light on education and athletics in the US. http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/07/us/ncaa-athletes-reading-scores/index.html?hpt=hp_t1
Athletic Directors throughout the country now have access to SPMS, an educational tool that can help get their students up to grade level in reading, writing, mathematics and more. SPMS can keep your athletes in the game because it accurately assesses their grade level across the subjects you select and then creates a personal learning pathway for them to reach their goal. As part of the pathway, they’re provided with video learning modules that will help them discreetly learn at their own level. They’re then re-assessed to ensure learning was achieved. Using SPMS, athletes can view their progress to goal and share reports to demonstrate their achievement.
We know you care about the success of your athletes both on and off the field. We’d like to help you strengthen any weaknesses they have in the classroom.
Please call Dave O’Neal at 1-800-230-2213 ext. 1132 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a date and time that you are available to discuss how to improve the success of your student-athletes.
