Taking a step forward from CTLD’s learning consultation services, National Taiwan University developed a Pre-Calculus Self-evaluation System (PCSS). It is an online learning system that allowing students to self-evaluate their Calculus ability through a set of Calculus questions before their first Calculus class in university. In the Full semester 2019, 462 students from 14 freshman Calculus courses used the system. Our preliminary study results showed that using PCSS can positively impact students’ learning outcomes, especially their mid-term grades in the first semester. Moreover, students’ results in PCSS provide information for instructors to make necessary teaching adjustments in the course.
