A Framework for Assessing Developmental Education Programs
Goldwasser, Molly; Martin, Kimberly; Harris, Eugenia
Journal of Developmental Education, v40 n2 p10-17 Win 2017
This paper presents a framework for educators, administrators, and researchers to assess distinct facets of developmental education programs. The researchers review the literature on best practices in developmental education with regards to program cost, program structure, and student placement procedures. This paper also identifies seven model institutions in these areas and includes qualitative research from interviewed individuals who work at these institutions. The evaluation tool developed via this research is rooted in both the research-based best practices and qualitative research from administrators at the identified model institutions. The paper concludes with recommendations for implementation of this assessment tool.
