In this Brief the authors first report on evidence about the effectiveness (or, unfortunately, in too many cases, the ineffectiveness) of remediation and then provide information about the progression of students through the developmental sequence. They discuss problems associated with the crucial assessments and make a brief statement about costs. They then describe three initiatives designed to improve the performance of remedial services. (Contains 10 endnotes.)
