Bruch, Patrick L.; Reynolds, Thomas
Journal of Developmental Education, v35 n3 p12-14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 34 Spr 2012
Drawing on critical multicultural education scholarship, this article discusses an alternative assessment of academic support programs. It highlights the importance and value of supplementing traditional assessments with direct student participation. Through a discussion of data from a summer bridge program at a large research university, the article examines how a participatory approach can illuminate strengths in a program as well as enduring challenges that might block student success.
