Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Developmental education, a specialty of postsecondary education, is designed to promote educational opportunity, develop academic skills and increase efficiency, according to Boylan (1983). Developmental education also includes training in basic decision making, training in personal responsibilities, and encourages growth in interpersonal activities (Clowes, 1980). Using this definition, there appear to be a broad spectrum of programs across the country offering opportunities for students which fit into a developmental education perspective (Robbins, 1983). Developmental education settings are located in post secondary schools such as community colleges and vocational-technical schools. Most of these current programs which began during the second half of the twentieth century adopt the "holistic" approach. This approach has evolved through a trial and error process since the earliest developmental education programs.
