Quarles, Christopher L.; Davis, Mickey – Community College Review, 2017
Objective: Remedial mathematics courses are widely considered a barrier to student success in community college, and there has been a significant amount of work recently to reform them. Yet, there is little research that explicitly examines whether increasing learning in remedial classes improves grades or completion rates. This study examines the…

Okimoto, Hae; Heck, Ronald – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2015
At community colleges, student preparedness for college-level work is a significant initial barrier. Over 70% of community college students are reported to be inadequately prepared for college mathematics. Because students need to pass college-level math in order to enroll in subsequent courses required for their majors or to complete general…

Núñez-Peña, Maria Isabel; Bono, Roser – Educational Psychology, 2019
Students' academic achievement in courses with a high mathematical content can be affected by their levels of trait, math and test anxiety. In this study, 180 university students were assessed on these types of anxiety and the relationships between them and students' performance were evaluated. Higher levels of math anxiety were related to a low…

Achieve, Inc., 2013
The equation is simple: No matter their background, students who take challenging math courses in high school get better jobs and earn more money throughout their entire lives. This paper stresses that: (1) Higher-level math opens doors for any and all postsecondary programs and keeps it open for advancement beyond entry-level jobs; and (2)…

Ngo, Federick; Melguizo, Tatiana – Journal of Higher Education, 2021
Using linked high school and community college records for students in a large metropolitan area in California, we explore what happened to students who experienced inter-sector math misalignment (ISMM). These students were deemed "college ready" by high school standards but were placed in remedial/developmental math courses when they…

Melguizo, Tatiana; Ngo, Federick – Educational Researcher, 2020
This study explores the extent to which "college-ready" students, by high school standards, are assigned to remedial courses in college. We used a unique longitudinal data set that links high school and community college transcript data. Focusing on math, we developed a naming device--"inter-sector math misalignment" (ISMM)--to…

Boatman, Angela – Center for the Analysis of Postsecondary Readiness, 2019
Under a hybrid emporium instructional model, students primarily learn content and skills at their own pace through a computer-based platform; during class time, faculty serve more as tutors facilitating individual learning rather than as traditional lecturers. This study evaluates the adoption of this technology-centered instructional model in…

Rutschow, Elizabeth Zachry; Diamond, John; Serna-Wallender, Elena – Center for the Analysis of Postsecondary Readiness, 2017
Until recently, most colleges required students to pass a college-level algebra course in order to earn a degree. As many as 50 percent to 70 percent of community college students enter college unprepared to take these courses, and fewer than 20 percent of such students ever successfully complete a college-level math course; the rest are…

Ganga, Elizabeth; Mazzariello, Amy – Education Commission of the States, 2018
In an effort to make math courses more relevant and improve success rates in college math, various organizations and colleges developed a new model of math education that has come to be called "math pathways." Math pathways enable students to take different paths through the math curriculum, depending on their course of study. With math…

Decker, Scott L.; Roberts, Alycia M. – Psychology in the Schools, 2015
Development of early math skill depends on a prerequisite level of cognitive development. Identification of specific cognitive skills that are important for math development may not only inform instructional approaches but also inform assessment approaches to identifying children with specific learning problems in math. This study investigated the…
