Probation Outreach: Overview & Participation ParticipantsNon Participants Spring Fall Spring Fall Spring The spring 2011 population is smaller because the list generated included all students on probation, rather than those who were on probation as a result of the previous semester, and included those enrolled in any developmental class, rather than reading/writing only, as a result it took time to “clean” the list and we were unable to reach out to as many students.

Reading/Writing Retest: Overview Data showed little correlation between assessment test scores and course success in reading and writing. Anecdotal observations suggested students often did not perform “their best” on the assessment. June 2010 began requiring any student testing into developmental reading and writing level one to retest. Goal is to more accurately place students into developmental and/or college level coursework, thus improving their opportunity for success.
