Improving Developmental Education: Multiple Measures and Math Pathways

February 26, 2019 | 11 a.m.–12 p.m.

In this session, researchers will present 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.

Multiple Measures Placement Using Data Analytics: An Implementation and Early Impacts Report Webinar

November 30, 2018 | New York Student Success Center

During the presentation, Elisabeth Barnett described early results from CAPR’s experimental study of 13,000 students at seven New York community colleges who were randomly assigned to be placed using either standardized placement tests alone (control group) or multiple measures (program group). While implementing the alternative placement system was more complex than expected, all seven colleges were successful in doing so. Early impacts results indicate students placed using multiple methods were more likely to place into and complete college-level courses in their first term.

Student Assessment and Placement Using Multiple Measures

October 11, 2018 | SUNY Association of Chief Academic Officers, Fall 2018 Conference

In this session, Elisabeth Barnett described why the use of multiple measures for assessment and placement is widely becoming viewed as superior to the use of placement tests alone.

Building Student Momentum from High School to College

September 27, 2018 | New Jersey Council of Community College's College Readiness Now Leadership meeting.

Transition courses offered in the high school senior year can help students to become college-ready in math and English, especially when they are co-designed with college faculty. This session considered different transition course design options in use around the country and discussed the pros and cons of each.

Student Assessment and Placement Using Multiple Measures

September 27, 2018 | New Jersey Council of Community College's College Readiness Now Leadership meeting.

The presentation focused on different ways colleges are creating multiple measures assessment models and included the results from research underway in seven SUNY colleges that indicates the promise of this approach.
