I am happy to report that for the first time in the history of the course (since pilot testing in the fall of 2013), I am seeing a correlation between class performance and fall GPA and spring semester retention. I understand that correlation does not equal causation, but it was very enriching to see that the course was moving in the right direction, and I attribute this in large part to [Cuseo's] book.
