Abstract/Description: Under Florida Senate Bill 1720 (SB 1720), passed in 2013, institutions in the Florida College System (FCS) were required to implement comprehensive developmental education reform by fall 2014. The reform exempted recent graduates from Florida public high schools and active duty military from developmental education courses, and required institutions to offer an array of delivery methods for developmental education courses. Additionally, institutions must use multiple measures to assess college readiness. The Center for Postsecondary Success (CPS) has been conducting a comprehensive evaluation of how FCS institutions have implemented the reform on their campuses. In this report we present key findings from our analysis of over 80 focus group interviews conducted with faculty, students, administrators, advisors, and other personnel at ten FCS institutions.
