Developmental Education Initiative

May 2009−February 2013

As part of their Achieving the Dream efforts, several participating colleges piloted small-scale developmental education reforms with promising results. Fifteen such colleges were selected to participate in the Developmental Education Initiative, with the goal of expanding innovative strategies to a large scale across a three-year period. CCRC is working with MDRC in its evaluation of the initiative. The evaluation will examine factors that impact successful scale-up and will link program implementation and scale-up to trends in student completion and progression.

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