Several recent research publications look at how reforms to the structure of developmental education combine with other reforms and supports to make a bigger difference for students. This blog shares resources to learn more about developmental education and transfer, developmental education and success coaching, and ESL reforms in California, along with several reports on corequisite courses.
In a recent webinar, Elizabeth Kopko and Susan Sepanik of CAPR, along with Sharon Fox of NorthWest Arkansas Community College and Nancy Shapiro of the University System of Maryland, discussed the long-term results of two studies on developmental education reforms and how colleges and systems have changed their policies and practices in response to the findings.

Both corequisite remediation and Multiple Measures Assessment (MMA) have been shown to get more students into college-level courses more quickly and to help students pass those courses. But what happens when colleges use corequisites and MMA together? A new CAPR study investigates how placement recommendations using high school GPA and other measures can improve student success in college-level courses.
At the start of 2023, CAPR began a partnership with CUNY on a study exploring the experiences of students and faculty and student achievement under different corequisite models. Hollie Daniels and Maggie P. Fay highlight details of the corequisite study at CUNY.
