Post-Test (Proctored) 70%
“Shell Courses” that do not designate modules
DSPM 0891 Developmental Mathematics I
DSPM 0892 Developmental Mathematics II
DSPM 0893 Developmental Mathematics III
Mean Scores on Post Test by Modules
Overall Success Rate Increased by 45%!
Overall retention increased by 14%!
