Developmental Education: A Call to Action for 2019

This webinar series will highlight successful approaches to increasing success for students who would traditionally be placed in stand-alone developmental education courses. Co-requisite delivery models, support for non-cognitive issues and new placement practices are yielding dramatic results across the field. Three national experts will issue a call to action for Michigan colleges as 2019 begins.

9:00-10:30: Overview and MCSS Updates + Co-Req Works:  CUNY Research     Demonstrates Success with Co-Requisite Mathematics Register

Students assessed as needing remedial mathematics are more likely to pass advanced math courses and graduate if, instead of being assigned to a remedial mathematics course, they are instead assigned to college-level statistics with co-requisite extra support.

Alexandra W. Logue, Research Professor, City University of New York

10:45-11:45: Beyond Math and English: Supporting Non-Cognitive Development in a Co-Requisite Classroom Register

The primary reason students don’t succeed in co-requisite math and English classrooms has nothing to do with solving polynomial equations or avoiding sentence fragments; it is a result of non-cognitive issues, which I have analyzed into three categories: issues in their lives, issues in their minds, and lack of college knowledge. In this session I will explore how math and English teachers, who, for the most part, have little preparation for addressing these issues, can, nevertheless, have a positive impact.

Peter Adams, Professor Emeritus, Community College of Baltimore County

12:00-1:30: Opening the Gateways: Using High School GPA for Placement + Next Steps from MCSS Register

Review of the current state of evidence of the capacity of our students and the potential of using additional, powerful predictors of student performance (often referred to as multiple measures) for increasing access to and completion of college-level English and Math, reducing equity gaps in those outcomes, and what these changes might mean for our students and our colleges.
