College Placement and Exemption.
Willingham, Warren W.
Of the various ways in which postsecondary education accommodates individual differences, this report is concerned with alternate treatments as opposed to postsecondary alternatives, institutional choice, program choice, elective options, and individualization. Chapter 2 explains how these alternate treatments are placed into four general classes: assignment, placement, selection, and exemption. These four are the subject of Chapters 3-6 respectively where they are defined more explicitly. Each of these strategies involves grouping students into alternate educational treatments on the basis of their cognitive characteristics. And in each case the objective is to enhance the specific instructional outcome (student achievement) or some broader educational benefit like improved retention or satisfaction. (Author/PG)
