Adding It Up: How the Florida College and Career Readiness Initiative Impacted Developmental Education
Mokher, Christine G.; Leeds, Daniel M.; Harris, Julie C.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v40 n2 p219-242 Jun 2018
The Florida College and Career Readiness Initiative (FCCRI) was a statewide policy requiring college readiness testing and participation in college readiness courses for high school students. We used regression discontinuity to compare outcomes for students scoring just above and below test score cutoffs for assignment to FCCRI. We also examined impacts for students from a wider range of academic performance by using a before-after regression analysis to compare outcomes for targeted students before and after their schools implemented the FCCRI. The FCCRI increased the likelihood of enrolling in nondevelopmental courses for some targeted students, although results differ by academic performance. However, smaller differences in the likelihood of passing nondevelopmental courses suggest that some students were not prepared for these courses.
