Document Number: 10592First-Year Undergraduate Remedial Coursetaking: 1999-2000, 2003-04, 2007-08 - Rates of remedial course taking have dropped since 1999-2000, this report suggests. In 1999-2000, 26% of first-year undergraduates reported taking remedial courses, 19% in 2003-04 and 20% in 2007-08. While the authors say these numbers may indicate increased college readiness, they don't control for such policies and practices as an acceptance policy that requires developmental work to be done before admission, or changes in evaluation of student need.(NCES, January 2013)...
