Armstrong State University-2015--Transforming Remediation

Campus Strategy: 

High Impact Strategy

Implement co-remediation in learning support courses


6. Restructure instructional delivery to support educational excellence and student success, especially in the area of remediation.

Summary of Activities

The Departments of Languages, Literature and Philosophy, Department of Mathematics, IT, Registrar, Advising, Admissions, and Testing Services worked together to implement the new co-remediation models for learning support.

Baseline Status

Tables 3, 8e and 13 show our learning support graduation, retention and success data, respectively. These numbers are all quite low and improvements in this area could yield large results.

Interim Measure of Progress

Students coded as learning support will have lower DFW rates in their Core A classes beginning Fall 2015. Fewer learning support suspensions will be issued. More non-traditional students and more freshmen at the lowest end of our admissions spectrum will receive the needed support to succeed in their early math and English courses, thus improving the number of credits earned and improving their 1-year retention rate.

Measure of Success

Our completion rate for learning support and Core area A courses for this population will increase, by 1% per year to 2020. The graduation rates for students in learning support will increase 1% per year to 2020. 

Lessons Learned

Large curricular changes, such as a change in the way that learning support is taught, delivered, implemented on the technology side and assessed for success requires a significant effort from many units on campus. It is at least a year long process to implement.
