NEW STUDY OF THE CALIFORNIA ACCELERATION PROJECT: Large and Robust Gains in Student Completion of College English and MathApr 29th, 2014
“. . . [A]ccelerated models of remediation are producing “large and robust” increases in student completion of gatekeeper English and math requirements at community colleges across California. Effective accelerated pathways led to completion gains among all students, regardless of preparation level, socioeconomic status, or demographic group.”
NEW STUDY OF THE CALIFORNIA ACCELERATION PROJECT:
Large and Robust Gains in Student Completion of College English and Math
A new report by the Research and Planning Group for California Community Colleges titled, ‘Curricular redesign and gatekeeper completion: A multi-college evaluation of the California Acceleration Project‘ confirms that contextualizing learning and redesigning basic skills education is significantly improving student success and has made great strides in narrowing or completely closing equity gaps. The 16 colleges in the study were part of the California Acceleration Project (CAP); each redesigned their curricula to reduce students’ time in remedial courses by one or more semesters as well as better align those courses with college-level requirements.
