Getting Started: Introduction to the Developmental English course for Administrators and Instructors

NROC Developmental English content is designed to help students meet basic college entrance requirements. NROC Developmental English was created for installation in a Learning Management System (LMS) and, integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum — reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation, and usage skills — enabling learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics. With media-rich presentations, comprehension exercises, and the My Journal feature, NROC English supports students through a variety of instructional approaches that engage and enhance a wide range of learning styles.


The NROC Course Manager

NROC Developmental English uses the NROC Course Manager, a proprietary service for NROC members that provides a database of student scores and progress generated by the course. View this section of the NROC Help Center to learn more.
