Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, this issue of "Data Notes" looks at student developmental education and gateway course outcomes by gender. The data show that more than half of students were referred to developmental math, with female students being more likely to be referred than male students. Females were more likely to complete any or all levels of developmental math referred to, while males with developmental math needs succeeded at lower rates at each developmental referral level. Across all racial/ethnic groups, males lagged females in first developmental math class completion rates, with Native American/Alaskan Native and Hispanic males fell further behind their female counterparts. In terms of completing gateway math within two years, females in all racial/ethnic groups had a 2 to 3 percentage-point advantage over males. (Contains 4 figures and 6 footnotes.)
