The National Directory of Exemplary Programs in Developmental Education. Second Edition.
Spann, Milton G., Jr.; Thompson, Cynthia G.
Developmental programs which have reached a relatively mature level of operation and can serve as regional models and resources for each other and for emerging programs are identified in this national directory. Introductory material discusses the need for and purpose of the directory, the selection process used to identify outstanding programs, the information gathering process, the collection and review of documentation, the scope of the programs included, and reflections on developmental education. The bulk of the directory consists of the two sections accompanied by user's guides. The sections contain: (1) a listing by state of institutions with model programs, including a list of particular exemplary components (e.g., placement testing, diagnostic testing, tutoring, tutor training, developmental courses, developmental laboratories, study skills, counseling, advisement, counselor training, peer counseling, English as a Second Language, evaluation, faculty training, financial aid, computer-assisted instruction, and audio-visual services); and (2) a listing of the institutions by exemplary component. Additional sections provide institutional names and addresses; a list of state information coordinators; sample legislation by state; and general information on the National Center for Developmental Education.
