trends indicate that a large number of underprepared students will
enter college. The state of Texas has devised a set of innovative policy
initiatives to improve educational outcomes within the state. This
study rigorously assesses the effectiveness of the Texas summer bridge
model in improving collegiate outcomes for students in need of
remediation by employing student level randomization. Early outcomes
suggest that the summer bridge had no effect on fall semester outcomes.
In the spring semester, small differences did emerge in the types of
credits students attempted (developmental v. college-level) and program
group students were significantly more likely to both enroll in and pass
college-level math, were more likely to enroll in college-level
reading, and likely to pass college-level writing.
