An Embedded Learning Assistance program was piloted from Fall 2014—Fall 2016 to support a high-risk, 100-level Practical Statistics course with a historical failure rate of 25%. As a result of this program, failure rates dropped to a record low of 10% and students were more engaged during class.

This session will be delivered through an interactive PowerPoint presentation and discussion, and supported with informational and practical handouts for participants. The informational handout will briefly summarize key facets of the Embedded Learning Assistance program described in the present study. The practical handout will prompt participants to reflect on high-risk courses at their own institutions, and to consider what resources they would require to implement a similar program. There will also be time for interactive discussion of the results, study implications and limitations, and implementation suggestions.
