Developmental Studies

This department provides post-secondary students with instruction in basic math, English, and reading. As the point of entry for learners needing academic development, Developmental Studies is sensitive to the needs of students making the transition to a college environment.

The objective of this department is to enable students to develop skills and behaviors that will lead to successful achievement in A-B Tech’s curricula. In compliance with the state redesign of developmental mathematics, Developmental Studies courses have a minimum passing grade of 80%. Students achieving at or above this level of proficiency will receive a grade of “P” and those who do not reach the 80% proficiency will receive a grade of “R” and will be required to retake the module until proficiency is demonstrated.
