Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community College Count, this issue examines the differing developmental needs and enrollment and persistence patterns of Achieving the Dream students across different age groups. The data show older students in Achieving the Dream colleges tended to achieve higher grades and perform better academically than younger students, yet they did not persist at the same rate. The results indicate that it may be worth examining options for separate intervention strategies designed specifically for older students, as their needs are often different from those of younger students. (Contains 4 figures and 5 footnotes.)
