IDS-0001.1: DEVELOPMENTAL COMPLETION RATES

Developmental Courses: Not all students are placed in developmental courses but majority of students entering ASCC take at least one developmental course. These courses are designed to prepare students for college level courses. They are offered under the College Accelerated Preparatory Program (CAPP) for two sessions in Fall and Spring. Developmental courses include Math 80 and 90, ENG reading levels 70, 80, and 90, and ENG writing levels 71, 81, and 91.

Standard I is based on the percentage of students who pass higher-level developmental courses divided by the total number of students enrolled in these courses per semester. This standard is divided into three parts with individual targets. The institutional target was set at 70% based on past performance and other factors. All targets are the result of a consensus by the institution.

  • % of students who successfully complete the highest level of Developmental Reading (ENG 90): Target = 70%
  • % of students who successfully complete the highest level of Developmental Writing (ENG 91): Target = 70%
  • % of students who successfully complete the highest level of Developmental Math (MATH 90): Target = 66%
