This study examined student success in an accelerated, integrated literacy course piloted in 2013 in response to national trends and state mandates.

Since 2013, 74% of students enrolled (n = 437) in the co-requisite first-year reading and writing course, ENG 101R, met developmental requirements and earned ENG 101 credit in their first semester. The pass rate is comparable to those in former stand-alone developmental courses and saved students time and money in meeting course requirements.

Since 2015, students who subsequently enrolled in ENG 102 passed at a rate comparable to students who did not have developmental requirements. Students’ self-reports and writing samples indicate that they gained confidence and metacognitive awareness, and met critical reading and writing learning outcomes.
