  • Redesigning Developmental Education
    Bitsy Cohn
    Coordinator, Developmental Education
    Director, Credit for Prior Learning

  • Effective Fall 2014, all Colorado community college students will have the opportunity to complete their dev ed requirements in no more than two semesters. Most will complete in one semester or less.

    The last time we revised our dev ed curriculum, we added pre-high school level courses in math, reading and English. This made It possible for students to have to successfully complete as many as 9 dev ed courses (In typically no less than two years) before they entered a college level course.
    What happened???
  • Confluence of Events

    President Obama’s Completion Challenge
    National Governor’s Association Commitment
    Legislating completion: Performance Funding
    Thomas Bailey – Students placed into remedial coursework who do not take remedial courses pass college-level courses and graduate at a higher level than those who enroll in, and pass, remedial courses.
    Complete College America – Time is the Enemy 2011
    Achieving the Dream
    CCHE, CDHE, CCCS
  • Colorado Mirrors the Nation statistics
  • Saved by the Belle
    State leaders wanted to take legislative action; it was just a matter of time
    Advocacy at the CCCS leadership level allowed us to take the time to plan
    DETF
    Broad representation
    18 month charge
    Resources to support the process
    Ability to compel change
    Policy
    Implementation
  • Core Operating Principles
    Key metric – success in college courses
    Time, not student learning, is the greatest barrier to success
    Use evidence based practice
    Continuous improvement is essential to long-term success
  • The Design: 5 Principles

    Use reverse curriculum design to redesign courses
    Design courses for what students need to know for success in college
    Encourage active learning by including active and/or experiential learning experiences with each lesson
    Make curriculum design and assessment of student learning and success a continuous process
    Provide students with individualized assistance through embedded affective skills, professionalism, and support services as much as possible in the process
  • The design: CCR graphic
  • Methods
    Co-requisite courses
    Contextualization
    Emphasis on rigorous reading and writing
    College level materials
    Significant interaction with instructor and peers
  • The Design: Math graphic
  • Methods:
    Integration and acceleration, not compression
    Pre-enrollment advising
    Secondary assessment
    Contextualization
    Modularization
    Flipped Classroom
    Innovative lab designs
    Soft landing
    Instructor identification and training
  • Assessment
    A CCCS specific assessment
    Uniform, weighted, multiple measures
    Reading and writing combined
    Non-cognitive factors
    Test scores to be validated every three to five years
    Calculators allowed to appear on the elementary algebra exam
  • Additional Elements
    Student Services
    Expanded advising
    Connections to non-cognitive supports
    Ongoing light touch case management
    Evaluation

    Faculty Professional Development
    Colleges determine plan
    System facilitates training to share resources
    Open source materials
    Webinars
    Archives

  • The picture so far..
    Fall 2008 compared to Fall 2013
    The number of developmental students registering in college level courses increased from 56,699 to 76,177

    The percentage of all students who passed a college level course remained constant over all subject areas

    MORE REMEDIAL STUDENTS ARE TAKING AND PASSING COLLEGE LEVEL COURSES
    One year retention
    Students entering at the remedial level have historically been retained through the first year of enrollment at a lower rate than non-remedial students

    As reported in the 2013 Legislative Report on Remedial Education, for the first time in the 12 years that the report has been produced, students who entered at the remedial level were retained through the first year of enrollment at a higher rate than non-remedial students

  • Lessons Learned
    Advocacy at the highest level of leadership allowed us to do this well
    DETF
    Broad representation
    Ample time - 18 month charge
    Resources to support the process
    Ability to significantly impact policy making
    A flexible policy allows the experts to do their jobs while protecting the interests of the students
    Implementation: Significant engagement is a more productive (and possible) goal than majority consensus
    From the first day you field a redesigned course - Evaluate, iterate, repeat
