Event Details

Students are well aware of the benefits of a higher education, yet too many students – particularly those who start off underprepared - struggle to complete their degrees. IES funded research has shed tremendous light on both successful and unsuccessful practices to support students entering community college. Working collaboratively with policymakers and practitioners, research is helping to inform advances in developmental education at community colleges.


Speakers include:


  • Thomas Bailey, Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University

  • Michelle Hodara, Education Northwest

  • Scott Ralls, Northern Virginia Community College

  • Moderator: Joanna Gorin, ETS


Cosponsored by: American Educational Research Association, Council for Exceptional Children, Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Knowledge Alliance, Society for Research in Child Development
