Student Success - Developmental Education Success

 

Developmental Math Success measures students who were enrolled in developmental math in the given fall term and earned a grade of C or higher. After Harper’s success rate for developmental math decreased from a high of 54.59% in fall 2012 to a low of 49.35% in fall 2015, the rate increased to 53.44% in fall 2016, achieving the 2016 target.

A larger percentage of students have entered Harper college-ready in math in recent years, leading to a smaller number of students enrolling in developmental math. In fall 2012, 2,024 students enrolled in developmental math, while in fall 2016 only 668 students enrolled in developmental math. Smaller numbers of students lead to increased variability in results from year to year.
