[Webinar] Equity Impacts of Multiple Measures for College Placement

A webinar from the folks at the National Repository of Online Courses.

View this email in your browser
Equity Impacts of Multiple Measures
for College Placement 
Webinar | Thursday, October 6, 12:00 PM PT / 3:00 PM ET

Based on the lived experiences of students who successfully completed developmental and college-level courses, the Maricopa and Ivy Tech Community College models for valuing preparation over placement illustrate the importance of collaboration between administrators, faculty, and staff to create a path to success for all students.

During this webinar, we’ll examine strategies for supporting learners in new ways and consider how low-stakes, learner-centered college placement has positively impacted both gateway course success and college retention, notably among underrepresented student populations.

Are you unable to attend? Register anyway, and we’ll send you a link to the archive.
