Date and Time: February 26, 2019 11:00 a.m.–12:00 noon
Location: New York, NY
Venue: New York Marriott Marquis | Astor Ballroom, 7th Floor

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. They 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.
