Pilot the infusion of I-BEST principles into selected high enrollment/low completion "gatekeeper" courses

Continuing in the 2015 – 2016 academic year, we will offer sections of high-enrollment, low-completion of BIOL& 160 with the incorporation of I-BEST principles. In the fall of 2015 students in an identified section of BIOL& 160 will also be enrolled in a College Experience study skills course designed to increase the success. Data from earlier offerings will be added to success data from this section to identify whether increases in completion and grades of C or better are impacted.

Professional Development for the CE 110 instructors across all campuses will be offered during summer of 2015.

Spring 2016

Data from the pilot courses has not identified a significant positive impact.  The most interesting results are that retention to the next quarter is higher and the student participation in the CE 110 course does increase test results significantly.  The college continues to explore options for integrating college study skills into a requirement for selected vulnerable students.
