At Paul Quinn College, we just started this practice plus required tutoring
for DE students.  The results have not been calculated; however, I can
honestly state that my review of semester grades indicates that most
students passed DE courses (C or better).  And, the resulting GPAs are
higher. Actual computations and time will tell.
