Mason, Maralyn
Online Submission
The intent of this paper is to examine the problem of the recent high school graduate who is not academically prepared to pursue college level work. The author reviews the literature to define the problems under prepared students face when they have to take remedial courses. How taking remedial courses impacts the likelihood of earning a degree is discussed. It also addresses what is perceived to be the cause of academically under prepared students: lack of alignment between the high schools and postsecondary education. A recommendation is made in support of P-16 alignment. Activity at Salem Community College in response to remedial needs of students is presented.
