  • 2. WHY ARE WE REDESIGNING DEV ED? • National Picture • The current system doesn’t work • The pipeline • Assessment, curriculum and the great debate • College Completion Agenda • Non remediated 58% • Math 27% • Reading 17% • Organizing the effort: Complete College America • Supporters • Carnegie Corporation of New York, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, The W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Lumina Foundation for Education • Goal • By 2020 6 out of 10 young adults will have a college degree or credential of value www.completecollege.org
  • 3. WHAT’S THE STORY IN COLORADO • CCCS 2009-2010 • 68,000 enrollments in remedial courses – 12% of all enrollments - - 60% in math classes 2006-2010 • Enrollment in remedial courses increased by nearly 65% • Recent HS grads (<18-20) are more likely to be enrolled in remedial courses than those from older age categories 2011 = 31.8% • Course completion rates • 61% of all remedial courses ended in successful completion • Math courses in general have the lowest pass rates REPORT: CCCS Remedial education and course completion rates, October 2010, www.cccs.edu

  • 6. THE DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION TASK FORCE • State Board of Community Colleges and Occupational Education • Developed as part of the state plan to meet President Obama’s Completion Agenda • Colorado Community College System was charged with assembling a group of stakeholders from community colleges around the state • 18 month charge • Recommendations to the SBCCOE in February 2013
  • 7. THE VISION The DETF has been charged with reviewing developmental education practices and with making recommendations about what steps the system will take to become the premier purveyor of developmental education in more streamlined and efficient ways, resulting in greater student success.
  • 8. The group, comprised of faculty and administrators from across Colorado, will make recommendations about: Assessment, contextualization, online learning, student support services, modular options, accelerated/compressed/mainstreaming of developmental education, and options for students. THE GROUP
  • 9. The DETF is working to identify the best practices in each area and then to make recommendations about implementation at the CCCS. The DETF will holistically examine the role that developmental education plays in overall student success. THE WORK
  • 10. THE CHARGE • Review and clarify the purpose of developmental education and analyze implications for policy and practice resulting from a clarified purpose. • Review current system policies and practices related to developmental education and propose revisions that will promote greater student success in alignment with sound academic principles and practice
  • 11. • Investigate and analyze measures of success, data reports and studies on success of developmental education students. • Examine structures for developmental education, highlighting innovative and successful strategies, improving the student experience and identifying barriers to success. THE CHARGE
  • 12. • On the basis of a comprehensive review, recommend broad strategies and specific initiatives related to developmental education that should be pursued by Colorado's Community College System Colleges, leading to enhanced outcomes for student learning and success. THE CHARGE
  • 13. INNOVATIVE MODELS • Co-requisite/Mainstreaming • Accelerated and Compressed Courses • Modularization • Contextualization
  • 14. WHERE ARE WE SO FAR? TAA and CCA grant CCA Initiative - $1million in 2011 to support reform Colorado Online Energy Training Consortium - $17.3 million Research – Presentations Reading Room Institutes, national and local innovations Discussion points Research is showing that students who test in at remedial levels and don’t remediate but complete, perform at an equal level to those who did remediate. Students entering at the lowest level rarely complete Assessment practices Curriculum content
  • 15. EMERGING RECOMMENDATIONS ASSESSMENT Following a revision of all developmental education curriculum, develop a Colorado Accuplacer using strands. This Colorado Accuplacer should include multiple measures (i.e. High school GPA) as part of the placement score. Have testing center directors/designated experts meet to determine processes and procedures that can be standardized across colleges Under discussion: Consider the adoption of standard Accuplacer test preparation i.e. AccuMFL, Boot Camps
  • 16. EMERGING RECOMMENDATIONS • MATH • Reverse design curriculum review to identify pre-requisite skills pathways to gateway classes based on graduation goal • Stats, STEM, Liberal Arts, CTE • Create new CCNS prefixes • Consider co-requisite AAA, learning community and orientation support to develop study and non-cognitive skills
  • 17. EMERGING RECOMMENDATIONS ENGLISH AND READING Develop a compression/co-requisite model that allows students to enter 100 level classes no later than the second semester State funded system of faculty development support to carry out re-design - release time/compensation Expanded advising Limited full-time positions during development and early implementation to provide stability
  • 18. EMERGING RECOMMENDATIONS Digging in Contextualized curriculum – learning communities, writing across the curriculum Curriculum at all levels customizable to student needs – hybrid formats, modular labs Cognitive and non- cognitive supports Faculty Professional Development Compression of English and Reading Students at the lowest levels – 17% pass remediation
