Developmental Success - Special Populations - Young Male

Source: Achieving the Dream Official Data Submission. Years are based on AtD cohorts. Developmental math attempts include all students who were enrolled in developmental math courses numbered below 90. Developmental writing attempts include all students who were enrolled in developmental writing courses numbered 100 and below. Developmental reading attempts include all students who were enrolled in developmental reading courses numbered below 100. Successful completions include those earning a C or better in one of those courses within three years. 

Note that the small number of students in this group increases the likelihood of variability in the data.
