The Redesign Alliance
Increasing Student Success in Developmental Math
Co-sponsored by NCAT and the Tennessee Board of Regents, this event addressed a key problem many institutions face: the increasing numbers of students who require remedial or developmental assistance in mathematics before moving on to college-level math courses. The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) in partnership with NCAT recently concluded an initiative to reform its developmental math and English curriculum. The goal was to improve student success while reducing costs to both students and institutions. Three TBR institutions demonstrated excellent results: Austin Peay State University, Cleveland State Community College and Jackson State Community College. These three institutions shared their redesign approaches and successes with workshop participants.
