Students successful in developmental coursework later do as well or better than students not needing developmental courses. This study examined the performance of 3,873 students new to a college for the fall 1997 semester through the spring 2001 semester. Analysis of variance and logistic regression were used to tease out effects of level of developmental need and age when starting. Consecutive semester attendance and number of courses dropped were significant predictors for degree or certificate completion. Age group interacted with a number of variables examined in the study. (Contains 7 figures, 17 tables, and 19 references.) (Author/SLD)
