Impact of a Texas Summer Bridge on Developmental Students' Outcomes

This presentation discussed findings from an experimental investigation into a developmental summer bridge program for recent high school graduates. A comparison between program students and a control group revealed no difference in fall enrollment and total credits attempted; however, there was a significant difference in the types of credits students enrolled in, with program students enrolling in fewer developmental courses and more college-level courses. Implications of this finding were discussed in the presentation.

Participants:
--Heather Wathington, Assistant Professor, University of Virginia
--Elisabeth A. Barnett, Senior Research Associate, Teachers College, Columbia University
--Joshua Pretlow, Graduate Research Assistant, University of Virginia
