What is going on when success rates range from 20 to 100 percent across different sections of the same course? Is it AB 705? Online vs. face-to-face? Student factors like race or high school preparation? Faculty factors like part- vs. full-time status? Something else? Researchers from De Anza College present their investigation into the variability in pass rates in transfer-level math and English. Then an English faculty member from Irvine Valley College shares practical tips for addressing variability as a department.
Presenters: Mallory Newell, Jerry Rosenberg, Ola Sabawi, Karen Chow (De Anza College) and Daniel Vernazza (Irvine Valley College)
