The Math Default Placement Rules Post AB 705: Predicted vs. Actual Transfer-Level Success for Students in the Lowest Placement Band, December 2023
Report examines the success for students with lower levels of high school performance who began in transferable, college-level math post AB 705 in order to compare the predicted versus actual success rates of these students as a validation of the placement rules. The analysis confirms the accuracy of the original placement rules and underscores the strong recommendation that colleges provide concurrent support for these students.

Is AB 705 Contributing to Enrollment Loss in California's Community Colleges?, September 2023
Brief explores two research questions: are enrollment changes experienced by California community colleges in fall 2019 explained by AB 705 implementation, and how did enrollment changes in California’s community colleges in fall 2019 compare to large community college systems in other states? The analysis concludes that fall 2019 implementation of AB 705 reforms does not explain relative enrollment changes at the state or college-level in that year.

Exploring BSTEM and SLAM Outcomes Through the Transfer-Level Completion Dashboard, September 2023 (Recording)
Webinar featuring an overview and demonstration of a complementary dashboard view to the Transfer-Level English and Math Dashboard called the Business, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (BSTEM) and Social Sciences and Liberal Arts Mathematics (SLAM) Dashboard which allows users to review completion rates for students on a BSTEM or SLAM pathway and explore outcomes by varying starting courses in the pathway and over differing timeframes.

AB 1705 Non-STEM Validation, Business Administration and Template Assistance, June 2023 (PPT)
Slides used in webinar focused on assisting colleges with submitting additional validation for non-STEM programs of study to meet AB 1705 requirements. Results from a recent analysis of Business Administration student outcomes are shared, with information about how to replicate the analyses locally. In addition, guidance on submitting local validation of non-STEM programs to meet validation requirements are discussed.

Maximizing Calculus Completion for Students Seeking the Business Administration Degree, May 2023
Report comparing the completion rates of Business Calculus or STEM Calculus for students with a Business Administration program of study. The study controls for student's highest level math course completed while looking at the starting course in which they began at a community college. Every group of students had substantially higher completion of Business Calculus or STEM Calculus when starting directly there. This research suggests that transfer-level prerequisites to Business Calculus or STEM Calculus do not meet AB 1705 requirements for applied or business calculus for business administration majors within the California Community College system.
