Success Rate Comparisons for DeKalb Tech Developmental Studies Students.
Johnson, Berman E.
A study was conducted to determine whether DeKalb Technical School's developmental studies students were as successful as other students who took more conventional routes of matriculation. The study was limited to 449 students who posted grades in developmental studies and/or in specified common content courses in Reading, English and Mathematics from February 1983 to February 1985. Study findings included the following: (1) the success rates of developmental studies students compared favorably to those of regular students in English courses; but (2) in mathematics courses, students who met testing requirements and entered their programs had higher success rates than developmental studies students. Recommendations concerning the college's Special Services Department and research needs are included. (LAL)
