Acceleration Strategies in the New Developmental Education Landscape
Venezia, Andrea; Hughes, Katherine L.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n164 p37-45 Win 2013
The college completion agenda, in concert with recent research, has brought scrutiny to the shortcomings of community college remedial programs. Remedial, or developmental, education has come to be seen as a hindrance to student progress and attainment rather than as a support. In this chapter, the authors describe new approaches to help students prepare for and move into college-level courses more quickly, while cautioning that we do not know yet whether many of them are effective.
