The PACE (Personalized Approach to College Education) program at Community College of the Finger Lakes was designed to provide basic academic skill development in reading, English, and mathematics for students with academic records in the bottom quartile of the entering freshman class. The program emphasizes student responsibility for learning and team teaching approaches. PACE goals and objectives for the overall program, and for teachers, students, and counselors are described in this document, followed by descriptive evaluative data on student achievement during the second year of the program's operation. All PACE students were pre- and post-tested in each academic area to ascertain the degree of their achievement in the PACE program. The following results are reported for students enrolled in the program in the second semester: (1) 68% of the students showed test score increases in English; (2) 55% showed increased mathematics scores; (3) 71% showed reading score increases; and (4) the dropout rate for PACE students for the year was 32%. Reports of outside evaluators of the PACE program are attached and a table showing outcomes for each of the PACE students is included. (Author/JDS)
