FYI:
At our four-year university, students in developmental courses receive
letter grades and must receive a C or better in order to pass.  Although
the credits do not count toward graduation, the grades do count in a
student's GPA.

This question actually relates to one I planned to post; I would like to
know who issues grades for developmental courses and figures those
grades into GPA.  I think our institution should have done more research
on this....

Subject: Grades in Developmental Coursework

Hello,

A proposal has come up here to remove developmental course grades from
the
GPA.  The credits do not count toward graduation.  However, many
students
end up on academic probation because of their developmental course work
and the impact on GPA.

I need some research citations to defend having the course grades count.
I have a lot of professional stuff on my shelves but am hoping you can
guide me to the resource locations quickly.

Any help you can give is much appreciated.
