Annual Student Remediation Report.
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, Oklahoma City.
In 1991, the Oklahoma State Regents adopted the Student Assessment Policy, which required each higher education institution to develop and implement a comprehensive assessment program with mandatory student placement. This is the eighth annual student remediation report. Data are for the 1998-99 academic year. Most data were collected from the State Regents' Unitized Data System. Institutions provided information about secondary assessment for placement in college-level courses. The State Regents implemented multiple initiatives to enhance student preparation for college. Improved high school preparation positively affected students' college remediation. Two-year colleges are the primary source of remediation in the State System. Remedial education in higher education serves a large percentage of students without draining state appropriated funding. Providing remedial education in higher education benefits underprepared high school students, place-bound adult returning students, and students for whom English is a second language. Data are provided on number of students enrolled in remedial courses; first-time freshmen enrolled in remedial courses; remediation and high school core curriculum; first-time freshmen enrolled in remedial courses by subject area; first-time freshmen scoring below 19 on ACT subject tests; first-time freshmen passing secondary tests; and first-time freshmen direct from high schools.
