Title:An early alert system for remediation needs of entering community college students: Leveraging the California standards test
Source:http://www.calpass.org/CurrentReports/Leveragin...
Date:2008
Organization:California Partnership for Achieving Student Success
Short Description:This study examines the relationships between California students’ high school achievement in math and English, measured by statewide standardized tests and grades, and the levels of and grades in their first attempted math and English courses at community college.
Annotation:Several studies have shown that there may be ways to identify students who will need remediation at college and correct that path before they have completed high school, thereby giving them stronger skills at college entry and better positioning them for college success. This study examines the relationships between California students’ high school achievement in math and English, measured by statewide standardized tests and grades, and the levels of and grades in their first attempted math and English courses at community college. If high school standardized test results or course grades predict college preparedness, the need for remediation in college may be reduced by putting students on a corrective trajectory before they leave high school.
