Transcript of College Students & Development Courses

College Students & Developmental Courses
While these develpomental education courses will not count toward your degree requirements, they are great "refresher" courses to help improve your math and writing skills
Students who place in developmental courses are often discouraged when they find out that they are not eligible for college-level courses.This may explain the high “no-show” rates among those referred to remediation.

How does this affect college students?
Developmental Education courses are provided for you, if you are placed below the college-level in reading, writing, and mathematics. These courses were created to provide students with the knowledge and skills required.
What are Developmental Education courses?
When looking at only community college students, several studies have found remediation rates surpassing 50 percent.
Did You Know?
A college student that places in Developmental courses are looking in to paying more tuition, for non-credited classes.
Also, it will take a longer process to get your two or four year degree.

Presented By: Kehau, Michelle, and Alisha
Less than 50 percent of re­medial students in college, complete their recommended remedial courses.
Less than 25 percent of remedial students at community colleges earn a certificate or degree within eight years.
According to NCSL (2013)

Students need to practice how to apply their knowledge in structured environments that provide support and encouragement.
NMSI’s free lessons are a great resource to have for this type of engagement.

Continuous practice reading complex texts across the disciplines and writing effectively for specific audiences will help students meet fast-paced and rigorous college expectations.
Mastering handwriting skills also increases brain activity and improves student performance.

Teach students how to ask probing and cogent questions. Students who learn how to ask questions of complex material tend to process the material more effectively. Doing so also helps them forge the emotional connections to the material, which is crucial to information retention.

Find academic support systems among their peers.

Ways to Prevent
According to National Math and Science Initative (2013)
Helpful Solutions to Educational courses:

There is student support (study groups)
Their are resources available (trio SSS)
Extra tutoring more flexable (S.I.)
There are a variety of remedial classes available such as learning community in many courses.
