Access Rate Gap
The purpose of this brief is to help leaders illustrate both their institution's outcomes prior to any reforms and, for institutions that have implemented reforms, to help illustrate the impact of implemented developmental education reforms at their institution. To meet this purpose, this Strategic Investment Impacts brief presents three interrelated parts. Part 1 is a step-by-step guide, with accompanying worksheet (Worksheet 1), to calculate an institution's Access Rate Gap. Part 2 offers a set of questions to lead a dialogue with senior staff once the first part is completed. Finally, Part 3 suggests ways to communicate the information with internal and external stakeholders.
