Webinar: Grappling with Widely Varying Success Rates

By: CAP Guest Presenters
April 2021

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)
