Assessing the Effectiveness of Developmental/Remedial Programs in Two Year Colleges.
Fadale, LaVerna M.; Winter Gene M.
The process of determining the effectiveness of developmental programs in two-year colleges was the focus of this study. It was limited to New York State, and designed in response to a request for proposals issued by Bureau of Grants Administration, New York State Education Department. The need for systematic review of developmental programs and local evaluative practices was motivated by the desire of state-level policy makers to base academic policies and funding decisions on current information. The need for a study was recognized by many local college program staff. The principal focus was determining appropriate evaluation criteria, the extent to which consensus could be reached on a model, criteria and standards for assessing the effectiveness of developmental programs, and the level of effectiveness within these parameters. Project results included identification of success criteria/standards used in evaluation of developmental/remedial programs in New York two-year colleges, development of an evaluation model for developmental/remedial programs, and estimated levels of program success through application of the model.
