Determining the Impact of Remediation on College Level Course Grades, Retention and Success
Norman, Thomas Kelvin
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
The purpose of this causal-comparative study was to determine whether varying levels of prior remediation affected grades, success, and retention in online college level courses. Traditional and online sections completed a demographics survey to identify background characteristics along with the amount and type of developmental class. Instructors submitted semester grades while some participated in email interviews. There was no significance linking remediation to the measured outcomes in the distance-learning environment. However, there were significant findings for the types of remedial courses and certain student characteristics. Future studies should focus on the effectiveness of developmental reading and college success classes. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
