The invest learning system is a computer-based program offering developmental courses in reading, mathematics, writing, life skills, and learning skills. As part of a joint project sponsored by the League for Innovation in the Community College (licc), the American College Testing Program, and the invest Corporation, California's San Diego Miramar Community College undertook a project to evaluate the instructional benefits of the invest Software for developmental education students and develop a profile of best practices. Data sources included institutional profiles and interim narratives from 11 postsecondary educational institutions implementing the software; results from pre- and post-tests; and surveys of students, laboratory supervisors, and faculty involved in using or implementing the software. Results from surveys indicated that faculty thought that the software addressed more than 60% of developmental education learning objectives and more than 40% of the objectives at their college, that lab supervisors gave high ratings to INVEST's service department and reporting system, and that 75% of the students both felt more comfortable with computers after 2 weeks of the course and would take courses using invest again. A compilation of best practices from participating institutions is included. Appendixes provide a chart of the invest curriculum model and information on the system's features and benefits, information on the licc project to implement invest, and invest and licc articles describing program outcomes at participating colleges.
