Document Number: 11300Addressing the Academic Barriers to Higher Education - Addressing the barrier to higher education that is remediation, this memo provides three recommendations. First, improve assessment systems that place students in remediation. Then, improve remediation itself by using technology, support services, and innovative pedagogies to do a better and quicker job of preparing students for college. Finally, adopt measures to prevent the need for remediation: offer college readiness tests in high school, align curricula and strengthen links between K-12 and higher ed.
