1 GATEWAY COURSE SUCCESS Gateway not “gatekeeper” Principles of Reform Gateway not “gatekeeper” Principles of Reform

2 DROPOUT EXIT RAMP #1 Too many students start college in remediation. 2

3 Too many entering freshmen need remediation. 3 KNOW THIS 51.7% of those entering a 2-year college enrolled in remediation 19.9% of those entering a 4-year college enrolled in remediation Source: Fall 2006 cohorts

4 DROPOUT EXIT RAMP #2 Too few complete gateway courses. 4

5 Most remedial students don’t make it through college-level gateway courses. 5 KNOW THIS Source: Fall 2006 cohorts

6 DROPOUT EXIT RAMP #3 Too few remedial students ever graduate. 6

7 Most remedial students never graduate. 7 KNOW THIS Source: Completion data: fall 2006 cohorts; graduation data: 2-year, fall 2004 cohorts; 4-year, fall 2002 cohorts

25 7 Principles of Remedial Education Reform Principle 7 Students should start a program of study in their first year 25

27 A New College Success Sequence 27 Assessment Use of multiple tools to include HS curriculum, HS GPA and diagnostic academic assessment Placement Placement provides information to both faculty and student about options Maps student progress through a program of study Enrollment Co- Enrollment in Remedial and College-Level Course Single semester remedial option Contextualize instruction in program of study Completion Success is defined as completion of gateway course Enrollment in a program of study Earning a credential
