Remedial English Placement Study.
Hambley, Peggy; Saar, Lorraine
An answer was sought to the question of whether there is a more precise way of placing freshmen college students in English into appropriate remedial class groups; current placements are contingent upon entrance test scores only. Subjects were selected from a certain group of remedial students who had been placed in the Developmental Reading/Composition program at Macomb Community College, Warren, Michigan. They were given a diagnostic reading test in addition to the entrance exam, and specific remediation groups were formed on the basis of test performances. After both tests were surveyed, it was decided that there was justification for using the reading test to aid in grouping. The findings also dictated that further study is needed to determine if individual weaknesses can be more positively identified from the specific areas of the tests. References are included.
