Majors

Albright’s ADP curriculum features an accelerated seminar format with intense use of the Internet as well as additional computer technology. Interaction between students is emphasized and much of this collaboration involves applied group activities.

While traditional classes meet 40-44 hours per semester, Albright’s ADP courses meet for four hours per evening for five to seven weeks. Remaining class time is fulfilled by a combination of Internet usage and independent study.

Through a special partnership with Reading Area Community College, Delaware County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Northampton Community College, and Warren County Community College, most associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) from these colleges transfer fully to Albright ADP (and acceptance is automatic if all Albright transfer admissions criteria are met.) Albright College offers a $2,500-3,200 Partner Scholarship based on GPA to graduates of these colleges. (Any applicant with an Associates Degree is eligible for a $2,500 scholarship.)

ADP offers bachelor’s degrees in:

Accounting: The accelerated program in accounting prepares students for careers in public and private accounting and in obtaining professional certifications. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

Business Administration: The accelerated program in business administration prepares students for a wide variety of careers in finance, banking, marketing and management. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

Crime & Justice: The accelerated program in crime and justice involves an analysis of criminal deviance and its roots, plus an in-depth understanding of our criminal justice system’s successes and failures. Unlike other criminal justice programs, students are not trained specifically for police work. Rather, students are educated in the academic study of crime, criminology and justice in preparation for a variety of positions within the criminal justice system.

Digital Communications: Albright College offers one of the only evening accelerated-hybrid programs in Digital Communications in the area. Focus on strategic communication across media platforms including publications, videos, and websites in the Albright College Digital Communications program. (This program is currently offered exclusively at our Reading location.)

Computer and Information Systems: The accelerated program in information systems is based on common structures and degree programs in the United States and Canada. It also meets the recommendation of the Association for Computing Machinery, which sets a variety of standards in technology fields, as well as graduate study programs.

Organizational Behavior / Applied Psychology: The accelerated program in organizational behavior / applied psychology prepares students for a wide variety of careers in social services, management, human resources, training and development. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate program.

Information Systems and Management: Albright s distinctive new major in information systems and management (ISAM) is designed to provide students with both the technical skills and the business acumen required to excel in information systems and business environments.

Highlights

  • Curriculum designed specifically for adult learners
  • Applied thesis project completed in workplace setting
  • Courses taught by Albright College faculty
  • 9-15 adults work as a cohort through the entire program

See your degree of interest on this Web site for application and file completion deadlines.

Once the admission file is completed and initially reviewed, qualified applicants will complete an extemporaneous writing sample followed by a personal interview with an admission committee.

Admission recommendations are submitted from the admission committee to the Dean of the College of Education, who will then make the final admission decision and communicate the decision to the candidate. The admission committee may establish an admission waiting list, if necessary. Students admitted should consult the Doctoral Program Handbook for additional program information.

Students who are applying for admission to the doctoral program are precluded from enrolling in any courses which met doctoral program requirements until the student has been completely admitted to the program.

Digital Running Records on Raz-Plus

With our Online Running Record tool, Raz-Plus or Raz-Kids members can:

  • Assign and listen to recordings of Benchmark Passages and Books.
  • Score recordings using an online running record tool.

BENCHMARK PASSAGES & RUNNING RECORDS

Find students’ instructional levels by assessing their reading skills with developmentally appropriate texts while recording reading behavior. Benchmark Passages are short text selections that are one part of a three-part process to help place students at their instructional levels for leveled reading sessions and to assess their readiness to progress to the next level.

Why Benchmark Passages

Benchmark Passages assess comprehension and reward students’ progress from level to level. They are one part of a three-part process that provides a more complete assessment of reading behavior and comprehension than any of the parts independently.

  • Each level has 2 fiction and 2 nonfiction passages.
  • Each level has at least 1 fiction-nonfiction passage pair on the same topic.
  • Each passage uses a level-appropriate percentage of words from leveled books at that reading level.
    • aa-E = 100%
    • F-J = 95% + 5% new words
    • K-Z = 90% + 10% new words
  • The text of the entire passage is used in the Running Record.
  • Most are one page long, but upper level passages can be two pages.
  • ALL are available on Raz-Plus .

How to Use Benchmark Passages

  1. Give a student a Benchmark Passage he or she has never seen before to read aloud. If you prefer to use familiar text, use the fiction-nonfiction topic pair at each level. Use one passage from the pair to support a student’s understanding of the topic before assessing with the other passage.
  2. Record the student’s reading behavior using the passage’s Running Record form.
  3. If a student scores 90 percent, assess the student’s comprehension using a Quick Check from Level A-Z and Retelling Rubrics .
  4. If a student scores from 90%-94% percent on the running record and answers comprehension questions at 80%-100%, he or she is at an instructional level. (For more details, see About Running Records ).
  5. Use Benchmark WOWzers to reward students’ progress from level to level.

Berks district judge charged with DUI

Berks district judge charged with DUI

READING, Pa. – A Berks County magisterial district judge has found herself on the other side of the law.

Kyley Scott, a daughter of Reading Mayor Wally Scott, was charged Thursday with driving under the influence and careless driving.

Reading police said they stopped Scott early on the morning of April 2 after receiving a complaint about her car swerving into oncoming traffic several times while traveling along Kutztown Road and North Ninth Street in the city.

The officers noticed that there might have been some intoxication, some alcohol on her breath, said Capt. Paul Reilly, Reading Police Department. They performed some field sobriety tests and subsequently determined that she may be under the influence of alcohol.

Officers took Scott into custody on suspicion of DUI. A subsequent blood test at Penn State St. Joseph Medical Center revealed she had a blood alcohol level of .188 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving in Pennsylvania, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

All by the book of what we standardly do for every other citizen, Reilly said. She was respectful at the scene, at the hospital, during the whole process.

The person who originally called police about the nature of Scott s driving reported observing her drinking at a bar in Muhlenberg Township, at one point placing her head on the bar to rest, according to court documents. The same complainant then left the bar at the same time as Scott.

The person that called it in did videotape, record some of the incident, Reilly said.

Kyley Scott was elected as a magisterial district judge on November 3, 2015. She holds the seat left vacant by her father, who resigned to serve as Reading s mayor. Kyley Scott administered the oath of office to her father on his inauguration day.

69 News reached out to both Kyley Scott and Mayor Wally Scott, but neither has commented on the charges.

Kyley Scott s attorney, Jim Polyak, did release the following statement on her behalf:

Judge Scott cooperated fully with police during their investigation of this matter. She is presumed innocent and will not comment further at this time.

Neither Kyley Scott nor Mayor Scott has also made no attempts to interfere with the police investigation, according to RPD Capt. Matthew Schappell.

Kyley Scott was treated the same as any other citizen, and Reading police officers followed standard operating procedures with respect to the initial stop, subsequent investigation, her submission to chemical testing, and the subsequent filing of charges, Schappell said.

Scott is the second magisterial district judge in Berks County to be charged in a criminal case in the past year.

Judge Timothy Dougherty was charged with theft in May 2016 for allegedly stealing more than $100,000 from his court and a volunteer fire company.

Dougherty is due in court for a hearing in the case next Tuesday.
