Abstract:
Acceleration, which involves the reorganization of instruction and curricula in ways that facilitate the completion of educational requirements in an expedited manner, is an increasingly popular strategy at community colleges for improving the outcomes of developmental education students. This Brief, based on a longer literature review, explores the evidence on the effects of acceleration on student outcomes and describes the various acceleration models that are used with developmental education students. It concludes by discussing ways of dealing with challenges involved in implementing and scaling up acceleration strategies.
