4 Of the 158,903 new students enrolled in Texas public colleges and universities in Summer and Fall 1999, 40 percent of those enrolled in community colleges were assessed as requiring math developmental course work. Of the 158,903 new students enrolled in Texas public colleges and universities in Summer and Fall 1999, 40 percent of those enrolled in community colleges were assessed as requiring math developmental course work. Of those enrolled in universities, 19 percent were assessed as requiring math developmental course work. Of those enrolled in universities, 19 percent were assessed as requiring math developmental course work.

5 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, Within School Type

6 Summer/Fall 1999 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math Statewide, 82 percent of the new students requiring mathematics developmental education are enrolled in two-year colleges.

7 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, by School Type

8 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, by Ethnicity About one-half of the students requiring mathematics developmental education are White, about one-third are Hispanic, and about one-sixth are African-American. A greater percentage of African-American and Hispanic students require developmental math.

9 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, by Ethnicity

10 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, by Age Older students are not more likely than their younger counterparts to require mathematics developmental education. Seventy-four percent of students requiring mathematics developmental education are 19 or younger; 83 percent are 21 or younger. After age 24, the percentages requiring mathematics developmental education decrease with age, and people over 50 are less likely to require mathematics developmental education than any other age group.

11 New Students Statewide Requiring Developmental Math, by High School Program Encouraging more students to enroll in the Recommended High School Program should help reduce the demand for mathematics developmental education, but not eliminate it. The existing data are encouraging, indicating that fewer students who have taken an advanced or recommended high school curriculum are required to complete mathematics developmental education.

13 2004 ACT-Tested High School Graduates Meeting College Algebra Benchmark by Race/Ethnicity Only 40 percent of ACT-tested 2004 high school graduates met ACTs College Readiness Benchmark demonstrating their readiness for their first credit-bearing college course in Algebra. When disaggregated by race/ethnicity, the college readiness numbers are even more sobering. Only 24 percent of Hispanic students, and 11 percent of Black students, are ready for college Algebra.

24 Del Mar College Developmental Student Outcomes Developmental students have higher retention rates than non-developmental students. Developmental students have higher retention rates than non-developmental students. Developmental students take longer to prepare for college-level work. Developmental students take longer to prepare for college-level work. Non-developmental students, who have already reached college level, are much more likely to transfer or graduate. Non-developmental students, who have already reached college level, are much more likely to transfer or graduate.

26 Del Mar College Completers Who Began as Developmental Students One of the most important measures of the success of a colleges developmental education program is the percentage of graduates who were at some point assessed as requiring developmental education. One of the most important measures of the success of a colleges developmental education program is the percentage of graduates who were at some point assessed as requiring developmental education. This measure is especially important to a college like Del Mar, which has open admissions and enrolls many developmental students. This measure is especially important to a college like Del Mar, which has open admissions and enrolls many developmental students. Studies show that this measure varies among colleges from 10 to 50 percent 1. At Del Mar College, an average of well over 60 percent of all graduates were enrolled at some time in developmental course work.
