Accelerated Developmental Education Models

May 2009–December 2012

CCRC conducted mixed-methods studies of two accelerated developmental education programs: FastStart at the Community College of Denver and the accelerated English program at Chabot College in California. Previous CCRC research of the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) at the Community College of Baltimore County has suggested that such programs offer underprepared students a more expeditious route to and through introductory college-level courses.

This project was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and by Lumina Foundation for Education.
