Respectful Alignment of Programs as a Possible Factor in Remedial Writers' Pass Rates
McDonald, Mary
Learning Assistance Review, v22 n1 p85-101 Spr 2017
For over four years, students enrolled in remedial writing classes who attended eight writing center tutorials directly linked to their assignments had an average pass rate of 95.6 percent, whereas students who did not attend any writing center tutorials had an average pass rate of 39.4 percent. These correlations are just that--correlations that cannot speak to causation--but they can encourage writing center directors to analyze trends. Examining the alignment among various programs inside the First-Year Experience Program at a large, urban Midwestern university, this project proposes that tacit collaboration might be a factor in yielding high pass rates.
