Whereas some current research that seems to show that English and math prerequisites are predictors of student success in general education courses is, in fact, flawed research because of the flawed research design, and

Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges should only support indicators of student success that are valid and reliable,


Resolved that the Academic Senate support funding for longitudinal research designs relating to the use of math and writing skills to predict student success in other general education courses.

Status Report: 

Prerequisite research has been identified as a subject eligible for funding through the student success fund.
