Descriptive and evaluative information is provided on Rockland Community College's (RCC's) Developmental Studies Department and its Special Services Project for economically and educationally disadvantaged students. Section I describes the functions of the Developmental Studies Department, which provides courses and services to help underprepared students work at college level and to complete a degree or certificate program. The department's assessment, placement, and advisement services; college skills and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses; physical facilities; and supplemental tutorial services are detailed. Section II deals with the activities and outcomes of the Special Services Project during 1987-88, and includes information on project sites, clientele, services, staff development, coordination with the Developmental Studies Department and with other college personnel, and students' evaluation of services. Section III contains a summative evaluation of RCC's college skills and ESL classes based on student progress in reading, writing, mathematics, and general language skills. Section IV provides a comparative analysis of student gains at RCC's main campus and two other learning centers. Finally, section V presents conclusions and recommendations. The greater part of the report consists of appendixes, including an explanation of RCC's Competency Assessment Policy; a tutorial manual and forms used in the Special Services Project; and an annotated bibliography of instructional materials for the project.
