The ALP co-requisite structure remains the same. Students with upper-level developmental placements in reading and writing register for a 10-student section of ACLT 053 and are also mainstreamed, as a cohort, into a 20-student section of college-level composition (ENGL 101), joining 10 college-ready students. Both classes are taught by the same instructor. Continue reading

New CCBC Student Data: ALP Students Earning More Credits Than Students Who Take Traditional Developmental Writing Classes

A recently released CCBC student data study shows ALP students are earning more credits (persisting) when compared to students who took the traditional developmental writing classes.  The study looked at 3 cohorts of ALP and Non-ALP students who enrolled at CCBC in Fall 2010, Fall 2011, and Fall 2012.

The first data set compared the ALP and Non-ALP students who passed ENG 052 (CCBC’s upper- level developmental writing class) and earned at least 12 credits within 1 year.
