Probability of Success: Evaluation of Florida’s Developmental Education Redesign Based on Cohorts of First-Time-In-College Students from 2009-10 to 2014-15

Analyzes how student success has changed following the implementation of Florida Senate Bill 1720 by comparing enrollment and passing rates of developmental education (DE) courses and gateway courses for first-time-in-college (FTIC) students before (2009-10 to 2013-14) and one year after the reform was implemented (2014-15). The report also examines how student characteristics are related to enrolling in developmental education courses by instructional modality (i.e., modularized, compressed, contextualized, or co-requisite) and how course modality is related to student success in their developmental courses, gateway courses, and fall-to-spring persistence.
