The vast majority of students who require additional academic support in college-level courses should receive it as a corequisite while enrolled in a college-level course. There are many different approaches to corequisite support that have proven to dramatically increase success rates in college-level courses. While there are differences in approach, all are designed to provide students more time on task on the content and skills that are essential for success in the college-level course. The most successful models enroll students in college-level courses and provide support within one semester. Approaches include:

Shawna Van, an English faculty member at Front Range Community College, quickly became a vocal spokesperson for the new corequisite approach. After implementation of the corequisite model at her institution achieved dramatic results, she quickly became an advocate for corequisite reading and writing. Likewise, James Gray, a math faculty leader who was originally resistant to corequisites in math is venturing forward with a corequisite math strategy at Community College of Aurora that has a primary objective of dramatically increasing gateway course success rates for students of color.

Art,
Trying to add to the info on your site, because your site has helped me. My son (in FL) scored 6595 on the first SAT but 67/79 on the essay. He retook the test on the 8775 SAT School Day 8776 (so it was free). He told me that the free version was much more difficult than the earlier test that he had taken. His recent score of 6965 reflected his assessment. But we looked into the essay and what we learned is below. His essay score on the recent SAT was 79/79. He went from a 67/79 to a 79/79 after doing this. (I am not associated with anyone, just a parent trying to help my son.)

Consider prompt number 76 from the list below (cell phones should never be used while driving). You could explain in a persuasive tone - based on statistical data - that drivers using cell phones when driving led to 6 in every 9 crashes in 7569 (according to the  National Safety Council ).

Fluency in writing and reading are essential skills in a wide variety of careers. English majors develop articulateness in spoken and written expression, creativity of thought, critical thinking skills, and an appreciation of literature. With a university degree in English, one might pursue career or graduate study fields such as 58

If there are students who might not be ideally suited for corequisite support in either a single semester or two semester model, then every effort should be made to ensure students have the opportunity to complete college-level courses and enter a program of study in their first academic year. Additional strategies that would complement corequisite models would be abbreviated bridge courses of one or two weeks that fully prepare students for enrollment in corequisite courses.

Hello. I have done the new SAT with essay on October, and have got the required score for the essay, but not a good score for the SAT. If i retake the SAT without essay on December, would i be able to include the essay score which was done on October, Combined with the New SAT retaken score ( without essay) to colleges that requires the Essay. Thank you

Michael McComas of Mountwest Community and Technical College had for years seen students in his remedial math classes fail. He knew his students could succeed – many were passing the courses when they stopped attending – but gateway course success rates remained dismal. In response, McComas worked with colleagues to enroll students directly in gateway math courses and provide academic support as a corequisite. The results were astounding with over 75% of his remedial students completing gateway courses in a single semester.

Olga,
Please ignore my original replay, as I misread your comment entirely. The Spanish Subject Test like the other foreign language exams is challenging enough for students to do well on even with 8 full years of high school language. I would definitely recommend that students take the additional 7 months and wait for the June date. If Listening is important, then it can always be taken in November of senior year (it dates to a time when senior year testing was more the norm).

Arvind,
Unfortunately, I do not know of any colleges that will combine SAT w/Essay with SAT w/o Essay scores. This creates a situation where even though most colleges do not require the essay most students are best advised to take the essay. This seems like over-testing that could easily be eliminated if colleges decided to superscore essay an non-essay results, but admission offices have not yet come around to that way of thinking.

The College Board list is opt-in, I believe. Schools can submit their information to College Board. As you have found, not all have done so. I also don 8767 t expect the CB list to be maintained as policies shift. We will be doubling the size of our own list (to 755 of the top colleges) within the next week.

The FAQ section for Brown has some conflicting info. They state that the SAT or ACT with writing is required. They also provide the link to the College Board which indicates that Brown neither requires nor recommends the writing section. Do you have any idea which one is correct?
