I finally got around to running some data. Overall in my College Comp one classes I had about a 60% pass rate with the 40% non passing being mainly comprised of students who "ghosted" and disappeared.
With my refresher course which runs for 2 weeks and allows the instructor to read a portfolio to determine placement 13 out of the 16 students who moved on into the College Comp course passed with a "C" or "B." There were no "As" or "Ds."
I'm pretty pleased with these results. I want a better retention rate so I'll continue to work on that but it seems that students who stick with it are doing well and I'm doing a decent job of figuring out which students can handle the rigor of College Comp!
Stay tuned for more data in May or June!
Thanks for reading!
