The California Acceleration Project (CAP) is an initiative that works to increase the proportion of community college students who complete transfer requirements in math and English and to decrease equity gaps for this early momentum point to degree completion. CAP has supported dozens of California community colleges to develop and offer English and Statistics pathways that reduce students’ time in remediation by at least a semester. These pathways align remediation with college-level requirements; use high-challenge, high-support pedagogy; and make no changes to the rigorous, transfer-level course. Hundreds of faculty have received in-depth training to offer these pathways, including in-person workshops, coaching, and online resources.

Accelerated developmental education aims to increase the numbers of community college students who complete college-level gatekeeper courses in English and Math. At minimum, acceleration involves reducing the length of English and Math sequences and eliminating the exit points where students are lost by not passing, or not enrolling in, courses in the pipeline.
