Alexandra Logue was quoted extensively in an Inside Higher Ed article concerning the (often insurmountable) costs in addition to tuition for community college students.
Who needs remediation? No one. Academe should get rid of remediation and the conceptual framework that surrounds it. New article in Inside Higher Ed: http://bit.ly/36JiD4o
It gives me great pleasure to announce the expansion of the Articulation of Credit Transfer (ACT) project, with funding from the Petrie Foundation added to existing funding from the Heckscher Foundation. Now, led by Ithaka S+R (Martin Kurzweil) and The City University of New York, we are helping 7 CUNY colleges facilitate the transfer of credits when students move from one CUNY college to another, including by expanding use of Transfer Explorer, our online tool that lets anyone see how credits will transfer among CUNY colleges. For more information see: https://sr.ithaka.org/blog/ithaka-sr-to-expand-transfer-improvement-efforts-with-cuny/
Announcing CUNY’s TRANSFER EXPLORER (https://bit.ly/2AtqzcY ), AKA TREX or T-Rex. This online tool, funded by the Heckscher Foundation and created with Ithaka S+R, can show anyone how any CUNY course transfers from one CUNY college to another (no login needed). We are still refining it, but please check it out!
This survey has closed. We are extremely grateful to the great many (approximately 30,000!) students who participated in this survey, and to the great many people who helped. We have begun the long process of confirming that everyone on the lists of students who were invited to respond, as well as everyone on the lists of students who responded, satisfied the survey’s respondent eligibility criteria. When that process is complete, we will then begin analyzing the data. Thank you again to everyone who helped us get to this point!
CUNY’s online research magazine, SUM, has published an article about my research with Dan Douglas and Mari Watanabe-Rose showing that student success is increased with corequisite as opposed to traditional math remediation: http://bit.ly/2NE3YyG
