The Implementation, Impact, and Cost-Effectiveness of Developmental Education Curricular Reform in California Community Colleges

Began in July 2021

This project is the first Institute of Educational Sciences (IES) Education Research Grant awarded to RFA. The $3.2 million, 5-year grant from IES, part of the United States Department of Education, will support research on the implementation, impact, and cost-effectiveness of developmental education curricular reform for postsecondary students across all 116 community colleges in California, the largest community college system in the nation. The IES grant was awarded through a highly competitive, independent review process. RFA is leading the project in partnership with The University of Texas at Austin.
