Opening plenary

 Findings from CAPR’s national study of developmental education policies and practices

CAPR surveyed nearly 1,000 open-access and nonselective colleges and interviewed nearly 130 institutional and state-level representatives to understand the landscape of developmental education and reform at two- and four-year colleges across the country.

The developmental education reform policy landscape

State leaders from around the country will discuss how developmental education has unfolded in their systems. Panelists will offer perspectives on the state’s role in developing reforms, how states are supporting colleges’ implementation, and the best approaches to evaluating their efforts.

11:00 a.m.–12:00 noon

Concurrent sessions

These sessions will explore issues around scaling developmental education reforms, implementation considerations, student perspectives, and the intersection of developmental education and workforce development.

12:00 noon–1:30 p.m.

Lunch and keynote address

Research, rigor, and equitable policy and practice

Bridget Terry Long, Harvard Graduate School of Education

1:45–2:45 p.m.

Concurrent sessions

These sessions will address developmental education at four-year institutions, developmental education reform and guided pathways, nonacademic supports, and pre-college remedial programs.

3:00–4:45 p.m.

Afternoon plenary

Findings from CAPR’s study of Dana Center Mathematics Pathways in Texas

Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) is an alternative model of developmental math that shortens students’ time in remediation, tailors course content to students’ career goals and academic paths, and uses student-centered instruction. CAPR studied how the DCMP model works and whether it resulted in better academic outcomes for students at four Texas community colleges.

Strengthening curriculum, teaching, and academic and nonacademic supports

This panel will explore the implications of developmental education reforms for curriculum, pedagogy, and student supports in English, math, and other disciplines. Researchers and practitioners will outline considerations for the field as it seeks to build on existing developmental education reforms.

4:45–5:00 p.m.

Day 1 recap

5:00–6:00 p.m.

Reception

Friday, November 22

8:00–9:00 a.m.

Registration and breakfast

9:00–10:30 a.m.

Welcome and morning plenary

Findings from CAPR’s study of multiple measures placement in the State University of New York

CAPR studied whether incorporating high school grade point average and other measures into math and English placement decisions resulted in more accurate placements than using standardized tests alone. The research, carried out at seven SUNY community colleges, also examined the impacts of multiple measures placement on students’ academic performance.

Taking effective practices to scale

This panel will address the critical questions of how states and systems and reform developers and advocates should approach scaling developmental reforms across and within institutions. How do colleges ensure equitable access to reforms while addressing unanticipated consequences? How can findings from CAPR and other research support more effective scaling activities?

10:45 a.m.–12:00 noon

Concurrent sessions

These sessions will examine some of the important elements of developmental education reform, including the impact of state-level legislative mandates, the role of technology, supports to increase student persistence, and the evidence for and implications of corequisite remediation.

12:00 noon–1:30 p.m.

Lunch and keynote address

Reflections on the past, new directions for the future

Thomas Bailey, Teachers College, Columbia University

1:45–2:45 p.m.

Plenary panel: Driving the work forward

Building on discussions that took place throughout the conference, this panel will look ahead to the next big questions on developmental education for educators, policymakers, and researchers. What has the field learned? What do we need to know to launch the next generation of reforms?

2:45–3:00 p.m.
