Colleges and university systems nationwide are implementing reforms in remedial math policy, course structure, curricular content, and pedagogy. However, little research has examined how faculty and students experience these redesigns or how such changes may impact student experiences and likelihood of completion in unintended ways. This qualitative study examines faculty and student experiences across three redesigned remedial math course models including a hybrid, co-requisite and quantitative reasoning course. Findings suggest that the theory of action underlying course models is often inconsistent with stakeholders’ experiences in courses, and that unanticipated consequences of course redesigns can undermine the goals of reforms.
