Brown, Janet R.; And Others
In 1987, Rockland Community College (RCC) established a Developmental Studies Department to serve students in need of remedial/developmental services. This report describes the services of the department and two special related projects. Part I focuses on the Developmental Studies Department, covering assessment, placement, and advisement; college skills and English-as-a-Second-Language instruction; physical facilities; and supplemental tutorial services. Part II presents information on the 1989-90 Special Services Project, a federally funded activity which provides supplemental tutorial services for the most severely financially and educationally disadvantaged students enrolled in developmental studies courses. The project is described in terms of physical sites, clientele, services, staff development, articulation with college personnel, and student evaluation of services. Part III reports on the RCC/Board of Cooperative Educational Services Pilot Project, which sought to remediate students' linguistic deficiencies in English and their native language and provide career exploration opportunities. Part IV evaluates of student progress in reading, writing, English language development, and mathematics during the 1989-90 academic year. The final two sections of the report consist of a comparative analysis of the three different populations served by the department and a series of conclusions and recommendations. The RCC Competency Assessment Policy is attached. (JMC)
