Ulmer, L. Ward
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Clemson University
This study sought to determine the relationship between the performance in remedial courses (English and math) and college-level course performances among students in a large university. This study investigated whether remedial education improves the achievement in freshman level collegiate courses. The study contributes to the literature on remedial education courses and placement testing, therefore offering possible enhancements and improvements to the improvement in remedial education. The researcher selected the correlational research design because the study sought to explore relationships between remedial course scores and freshman-level course scores. The findings from this study showed remedial course performance was associated in a significant positive manner with college-level course performance. The implications of the relationships in literature and in practice were discussed. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
