Progress in Florida

Although the State of Florida has seen dismal results following a state-mandated change making developmental education optional, some of the state’s two-year colleges have turned to creativity. One of these colleges, St. Petersburg College, created its own measurement tool to be used when determining whether students need remediation. Yet another, Indian River State College, has put new measures in place to increase students’ success in remediation, with positive results. One of the college’s approaches was offering three sections of developmental math that use a modular approach; this strategy has also seen a nearly 91% success rate.
