A new report from the California Acceleration Project features community colleges that have transformed their policies to enable the majority of students to bypass remediation and begin directly in college-level courses. Up the the Challenge: Community Colleges Expand Access to College-Level Courses features student stories and success data from Cuyamaca College, College of the Canyons, Las Positas College, Solano College, Skyline College, and Sacramento City College. The colleges featured in Up to the Challenge used high school grades to place students into English and math courses, instead of their prior practice of relying almost exclusively on standardized tests. They also replaced traditional remedial courses with co-requisite models that enable students to begin directly in transferable college-level courses with 2 or 3 units of additional support. The result? Immediate and dramatic increases in student completion of college-level English and math, a critical early momentum point toward degrees and transfer.
