  19. Carla’s Comment “I’m really a terrible writer, but my English teacher thinks I’m a good writer, so this semester I have written really good papers so she doesn’t find out what a bad writer I am.” A L P The Accelerated Learning Project

  20. The Problem For students placed in ENG 052, • the success rate is too low. • the attrition rate is too high A L P The Accelerated Learning Project

  24. What do we do in the ENG 101 class? The English 101 class is conducted just like a regular 101 class. We consider it essential that we maintain the same standards and cover the same material in the 101 class as we would in any 101 section. A L P The Accelerated Learning Project

  25. What do we do in the ALP 052 class? • The instructor for the ALP 052 section has one goal: to do everything possible to maximize the ALP students’ likelihood of success in the 101 class. • answering questions left over from the 101 class • lots of writing, mostly of short papers that reinforce what has been iiiidiscussed in the 101 class or prepare for what will be discussed in iiiithe 101 class • discussing ideas for the next essay in 101 • reviewing drafts of essays the students are working on for 101 • working on grammar and punctuation • discussing how to succeed as a college student • discussing problems interfering with the students’ progress in 101 A L P The Accelerated Learning Project

  35. Nikki Edgecombe and Davis Jenkins Community College Research Center Teachers College, Columbia University Funded by the Lumina Foundation Community College of Baltimore CountyAccelerated Learning Program (ALP) Preliminary Analysis of Effectiveness

  36. Age Gender Race/ethnicity Family income (Census tract + FAFSA EFC) Family size Dependent status Financial aid (type and amount) Multivariate model controls Earned credits prior to CCBC enrollment CCBC dual enrollment Full-time at first enrollment Credits attempted prior to ENG 052 Took ENG 051 (lower-level dev ed course) Accuplacer scores (English, reading, math) * Instructor (anonymous) identifiers for accelerated and regular sections

  37. Results indicate positive effects of ALP enrollment for ENG 052 students in terms of: ENG101 passes ENG102 attempts and passes total college-level courses attempted in the iyear following ENG 052. Conclusions

  38. Conclusions CCRC plans to conduct a further examination of ALP be conducted after the program has scaled up to a larger proportion of CCBC students and faculty

  39. The CCRC report on CCBC has just been released and can be downloaded from their web site: http://ccrc.tc.columbia.edu Community College Research Center Institute on Education and the Economy, Teachers College, Columbia University 525 West 120th Street, Box 174, New York, NY 10027 E-mail: ccrc@columbia.edu Telephone: 212.678.3091

  40. A L P The Accelerated Learning Project Student Surveys Student surveys were distributed in all ALP classes and in sections of traditional ENGL 052 at the beginning and at the end of the spring 2010 semester. 53 traditional ENGL 052 students and 91 ALP students responded to the pre-semester survey. 48 traditional ENGL 052 students and 79 ALP students responded to the post-semester survey.

  47. Weekly Report on Student Behavioral Problems 1. How many students originally registered for your class: _______. 2. How many students have dropped the course: ________. (Count students as "dropped" when they have officially dropped through Records & Registration or if they have missed so many classes that, if they returned now, they could not possibly pass the course.) 3. How many were absent each day this week. If there are students whom you have listed under question 2 as "dropped," do not count them as absent. a. Monday or Tuesday: _______ b. Wednesday or Thursday: ______ c. Friday: _______ 4. How many students were late by more than 5 minutes: a. Monday or Tuesday: _______ b. Wednesday or Thursday: ______ c. Friday: _______ 5. How many students missed deadlines for submitting required work this week? If there are students who did not come to class this week and did not submit required work, count them in this total. Do not count students whom you listed as "dropped" in question 2 as missing deadlines. 6. How many times this week did you have to interrupt class to talk to a student or several students about their behavior?
