Exploratory Analysis of a Blended-Learning Course Redesign for Developmental Writers
Wilson, Douglas A.; Dondlinger, Mary Jo; Parsons, Jacob L.; Niu, Xiaoyue
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v42 n1 p32-48 2018
This quasiexperimental investigation describes the relative effects of a technology-driven course redesign on retention and achievement in a developmental writing program at a large, urban community college in the southwest United States. The new program focused on student learning and included online as well as face-to-face components that allowed students to complete the program in half the usual time in most cases. On average, students enrolled in the new program had lower placement test scores compared to students in the old program, but the gap was closed in the subsequent test and English course. Details of the redesign and challenges to conducting educational research and data analysis in community colleges are provided for other 2-year colleges considering course redesigns intended to impact student success.
