Accelerated students do better

High-level remedial writing students are more likely to complete college-level English courses if they participate in Community College of Baltimore County’s Accelerated Learning Program (ALP), concludes a Community College Research Center follow-up study.  Furthermore, ALP students were more likely than non-ALP students to persist to the next year.

ALP lets developmental students take classes with college-ready students. College-ready students in ALP English 101 did as well as similar students in  wholly college-ready sections, but slightly lower subsequent college-level course enrollment and completion.
