Overarching Developmental Education Goals
and Measures of Success
Goal
Broad areas of
success
Measures
1. To reduce the overall need
for developmental education
Placement results
1.1. Placement test results and select cohort characteristics disaggregated by
placement test results and course-taking patterns in first academic year.
2. To design developmental
education in a way that
reduces the time to complete
developmental coursework
requirements
Success in
developmental
courses
2.1. Percent passing developmental course on first attempt
2.2. Percent of W, U, R returning and passing same course
2.3. Overall success rates in individual developmental courses
Success in college
work
3.1. Percent passing 80% or more of credits attempted in first term
3.2. Persistence rates – fall to spring and fall to fall
3.3. Comparison by developmental education status of success rates for
students who enrolled in college English or mathematics courses by end of
year 2
3.4. Percent passing any college English or mathematics course on first
attempt and eventually
Outcome success
4.1. Overall graduation or transfer rates
4.2. Percent earning an associate degree or certificate within 4 years
4.3. Percent transferring to a four-year institution within 4 years
3. To increase graduation and
transfer rates for students
first enrolled in
developmental courses

STUDENT SUCCESS SNAPSHOT #26: STUDENT PERFORMANCE IN REDESIGNED
DEVELOPMENTAL MATH COURSES
FOR GOAL #2:
SUCCESS IN DEVELOPMENTAL
COHORT: SUCCESS IN
DEVELOPMENTAL COURSES
• Over 68% of students
who placed into
developmental math
attempted at least one
of the units they needed
in the first four terms.
COHORT: READINESS FOR
COLLEGE-LEVEL MATH COURSES
• 56% of students in the
total study cohort either
successfully completed
their required
developmental math
units or were collegeready by the end of
spring 2013.
OVERALL: PROGRESS TOWARD
COLLEGE-LEVEL MATH COURSES
• Students enrolling in
developmental math who
made progress increased
from 50% in fall 2011 to
65% in fall 2012.
OVERALL: ATTEMPTED
COMPARED TO COMPLETED
• The average number of
developmental math credit
hours attempted reduced
from 4.2 in fall 2011 to 2.8 in
fall 2012.
• The average number of
developmental math credit
hours completed within a
semester stayed the same.

REPORTING STRUCTURES
What is Quinn?
The VCCS Decision Support System, which is a complex data
warehouse supporting 23 community colleges
Includes modules for Financial, Student, Financial aid, and
HR data, which pull data directly from PeopleSoft systems
Intended to provide data to decision makers at all levels of
the system, which is self service, timely, and interactive
Utilizes an easy to use interface for access to complex data
Based on commercial system with heavy customization
Quinn Data for Developmental Education
