An Evaluation of an Individualized Interpersonal and Interdisciplinary Team Approach to Remediation at Mohegan Community College.
Aarons, Howell
In order to assess the effects of the remedial (foundations) program at Mohegan Community College (Connecticut) on students' academic performance and persistence in college, a study was made of 180 students who had enrolled in the Foundations Program between September 1971 and 1974, and 180 students who had scored below the 50th percentile on the Comparative Guidance and Placement Test but had not enrolled in the program. Students in the control group were chosen by the matched pair technique; scores of enrolled students were sifted for scores equal to those of students in the treatment group. Then, one score was randomly selected for each score in the treatment group. Using the records in the office of the registrar, transcripts of all subjects were examined and a variety of data were collected. Students in the Foundation Program were found to have significantly greater persistence than those in the control group. Students in the treatment group who persisted for a set period of time had higher quality point averages (QPA's) than classmates not enrolled in the program. Whether a student volunteered for the program or was pressured to enroll, his level of persistence was likely to be about the same. A survey of the literature is included and a bibliography is appended. (NHM)
