  1. 1. Developmental Education Taskforce
  2. 2. Overview  History of developmental education in CO  Our recommendations  Math  College Reading and Composition (English & Reading)  Administrative  Proposed timeline
  3. 3. The problem ―The more levels of developmental courses a student needs to go through, the less likely that student is to ever complete college English or math.‖ - Thomas Bailey (2009) CCRC Brief.
  4. 4. Colorado percent of enrollment in developmental education 27% 73% Enrollment Students enrolled in at least one DE course All other students
  5. 5. CCCS students 61.6 25.3 13.1 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 MAT ENG REA Percent of total remedial enrollment Percent of total remedial placement
  6. 6. Traditional Colorado course pipeline MAT 030 MAT 060 MAT 090 MAT 099 ENG 030 ENG 060 ENG 090 REA 030 REA 060 REA 090
  7. 7. Current course completion Course 2010-2012: 3 year average ENG 030 61.6% ENG 060 63.2% ENG 090 63.5% REA 030 64.0% REA 060 68.1% REA 090 63.8% MAT 030 60.8% MAT 060 66.3% MAT 090 60.1% MAT 099 57.9% Total Average 62.9%
  8. 8. Why high attrition rates are a structural problem  For students who place two levels below a college course there are 5 ―exit points‖  Do they pass the first course  Do they enroll in the next course?  Do they pass the second course?  Do they enroll in the college-level course?  Do they pass the college-level course?  Students placing three levels down have 7 exit points.
  9. 9. Why high attrition rates are a structural problem  CCCS pipeline example for students beginning in MAT090  Enroll in remedial math (6933) 100%  Do they complete MAT 090 (3053) 44%  Do they enroll in college math (1746 ) 25%  Do they complete college math (1239) 18%  Do they graduate (558) 8% Nawrocki, Baker, & Corash (2009). Success of remedial math students in the Colorado community college system: A longitudinal study.
  10. 10. Why high attrition rates are a structural problem  CCCS pipeline example for students who completed ENG 030 - fall 2010  Completed 030(538) 100%  Do they enroll and complete 060 (189) 35%  Do they enroll in and complete 090 (32) 6%
  11. 11. The goal of our recommendations Move students quickly and effectively through their first college level course.
  12. 12. National models considered  Washington State - iBest  Tennessee – modules and math emporium  Los Medinos - shortening the developmental pipeline and acceleration in math*  CCBC - Accelerated Learning (ALP)*  Chabot College – Acceleration and engaging faculty to dive into pedagogy and practice*  University of Texas - new mathways project*  APSU– mainstreaming * Indicates projects that heavily influenced CO recommendations
  13. 13. Our recommendations  Reduce the amount of time, number of credits, and number of classes  Curriculum redesign  Reverse design  What students need to know for success in college class  Active learning experiences  Ongoing process
  14. 14. Math
  15. 15. Math recommendations
  16. 16. Multiple pathways  Each course in each developmental sequence should be redesigned to only cover content necessary for the college level course.  Multiple developmental sequences/paths/branches available to students based on their career/major interest. Leading to college math clusters in:  Non-transfer  Non-STEM  STEM
  17. 17. Student advising as part of placement  Work with advisors to help students make informed choices that realistically reflect their academic preparation, abilities, and interests
  18. 18. Assessment preparation  Non-credit leading to re-test  Options for colleges:  Referral to ABE programs  AAA Accuplacer preparation  Boot camp  NROC  MFL, Aleks, Enhanced web assign  MOOC’s  Tutoring
  19. 19. College Reading and Composition (English & Reading)
  20. 20. College Reading and Composition  Offer an accelerated model that provides students with the opportunity to enter a 100 level class no later than their second term in enrollment  Integrate Reading and English  Current sequence should be compressed and accelerated  There are a variety of possible delivery strategies to achieve this goal
  21. 21. Multiple placements REA030 REA060 REA090 None ENG030 3% 2% 1% 0% ENG060 2% 6% 6% 3% ENG090 0% 5% 14% 20% ENG121 0% 0% 4% 34%
  22. 22. CRC recommendations Placement Score(s) First Term Leads to 1A) RC 0-39 and/or SS 0-49 Soft Landing Accuplacer test 1B) RC 0-39 and/or SS 0-49 CRC 092 + CRC 091 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements RC40-61 and/or SS 50-69 CRC 092 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements 2A) RC62-79 and/or SS 70-94 CRC 093 Studio D Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements 2B) RC62-79 and/or SS 70-94 CRC 094 Studio 121 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements
  23. 23. Administrative
  24. 24. Testing and placement  Colorado specific Accuplacer with ―strands‖  Uniform multiple measures built into Accuplacer system  Consistent test administration statewide  Validate Accuplacer scores every 3-5 years – are we using the right cut scores  To accomplish these goals use a system level institutional administrator (IA) in addition to college site administrators for local control
  25. 25. Student support  Use CCCSE practices  Orientation  Goal setting and planning  No late registrations  First year experience  Student success course  Tutoring  Supplemental instruction  Case management/academic advising/career coaches  College develop a plan to use for planning, initiating, and sustaining success for developmental students
  26. 26. Faculty support and development  Colleges create a professional development plan  Offer limited full time positions to current adjunct instructors during implementation  Provide release time for implementation  Course release and reassigned time to develop and implement student success strategies  Functional work groups on campus—i.e. BANNER, Advising, Testing—address the issues of the implementation process  Provide, with CCCS, continuing professional development focusing on research-based strategies  Train transfer level and developmental faculty
  27. 27. Measures of success  Successful developmental students and programs should be measured in the following ways:  In Math – Successful completion of any college level (100+) math course  In English and Reading – Successful completion of any college level (100+) English course or any college level discipline strands course.
  28. 28. What happens next?
  29. 29. Implementation teams  Core implementation team  Faculty  Focused on curriculum, content, training, and professional development  Redesign advisory group  Administrative (Banner, Business officer, Advising, financial aid…)
  30. 30. Timeline  Spring/summer 13 discipline team work to develop curriculum and to create professional development training for faculty and staff  Fall of 13 schools that are already working on redesign will ramp up projects  Spring 14 all colleges should transition to the new models  Fall of 14 all colleges should be operating with the new models in place
