Are Your High School Constituents Successful in College? The Issue.
Ohio Board of Regents
This document highlights notable findings to the report, "Making the Transition from High School to College in Ohio, 2003," through questions and answers. This Ohio Board of Regents report focuses on the preparedness and success of recent high school graduates who go on to college. Data is presented on secondary school preparation for college, remedial college course enrollment, first-time student participation, retention, and in-state/out-of-state institution selection. One of the key findings of the report is that students who take a rigorous curriculum in high school are more successful in college. These students need much less remediation than other less prepared students, have higher college GPAs and are more likely to return to college in the second year.
