Improving Developmental Education: Multiple Measures and Math Pathways

Colleges are under pressure to reform developmental education. In this session, researchers presented promising findings from studies examining multiple measures for developmental course placement and math pathways reforms within the context of results from a national survey about developmental education practices. It focused on how to set up a multiple measures assessment and placement system in a college, taking into account what researchers know about impacts on student outcomes, resources needed, and lessons learned on implementation in three states.
