Program Components

According to the literature, a number of specific programmatic components are characteristic of highly effective developmental education programs.

These include:

B.1 Orientation, assessment, and placement are mandatory for all new students.

B.2 Regular program evaluations are conducted, results are disseminated widely, and data are used to improve practice.

B.3 Counseling support provided is substantial, accessible, and integrated with academic courses/programs.

B.4 Financial aid is disseminated to support developmental students. Mechanisms exist to ensure that developmental students are aware of such opportunities and are provided with assistance to apply for and acquire financial aid.
