Abstract

This research addresses how AVID strategies impact student achievement. The literature review provides a historical context for the achievement gap and remedies which have been enacted to combat disparities among student populations. The research looks at a newly implemented AVID program and asks the students to rate various AVID components and determine if they play a key role in helping the students meet their learning objectives. The highlighted AVID components included organization, advocacy, college exposure, and advanced course enrollment. Most participants found AVID strategies pivotal in fostering a sense of achievement. Furthermore, the AVID Coordinator observed how students were beginning to see how AVID strategies transferred across disciplines and had long-term benefits for future college environments
