Cullinan, Dan; Lewy, Erika B. – MDRC, 2021
How should colleges determine whether students are placed into developmental or college-level courses? Each year, colleges place millions of students into developmental math and English courses upon enrollment. To do so, colleges most often use a high-stakes placement test, which numerous research studies have shown to be highly inaccurate in…

Ponce Campuzano, Juan Carlos; Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we report on an experimental activity for discussing the concepts of speed, instantaneous speed and acceleration, generally introduced in first year university courses of calculus or physics. Rather than developing the ideas of calculus and using them to explain these basic concepts for the study of motion, we led 82 first year…
