Package Courses

Wilcox, K. S., delMas, R. C., Steward, B., Johnson, A. B., & Ghere, D. (1997). The "package course" experience and developmental education. Journal of Developmental Education, 20(3), 18-20, 22, 24, 26.
The effect of package courses-based on the learning community model-on several educational outcomes was investigated for linked courses: a content course; an academic success/study skills course; and, in some cases, a noncredit math course. Package course students earned higher student outcomes and additional qualitative benefits were observed at the General College of the University of Minnesota.
