Looking Ahead: Synthesizing What We Know about National, Regional, and Local Efforts to Improve Student Preparation and Success
Jez, Sujin; Venezia, Andrea
New Directions for Community Colleges, n145 p103-106 Spr 2009
Given the variety of student intents, programs, pathways, and courses offered at a given community college, it is almost impossible for community colleges to provide general information to all prospective students about how to prepare for all the courses offered. But if community colleges seek to help students reach their goals, they must improve the academic readiness signals they send to prospective students. In this chapter, the authors combine the information learned from the two strands within this volume (campus-based and national perspectives for improving student success before matriculation and in developmental education in community colleges) to pose some final thoughts and next steps for future work in this area.
