Role of Pre-College (Developmental and Remedial) Education for Recent High School Graduates Attending Washington Community and Technical Colleges: System Summary for Students Enrolled in 2008-09. Research Report Number 09-5
Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges
This report provides system-level summary highlights of pre-college course-taking behavior of high school graduates who attended a community or technical college in the year following graduation, and of those who delayed enrollment at the college for one or two years after high school graduation. The report contains information on these enrollment trends as required by RCW 28B.10.685. The report also describes the expenditures for pre-college courses. Key findings include: (1) Fifty-four (54) percent of community and technical college students who graduated from high school in 2008 took pre-college (also known as remedial) classes in 2007-08. These students--totaling 13,328--enrolled in pre-college math, English or reading; (2) Forty-eight (48) percent of community and technical college students who graduated from high school in 2008 took pre-college math courses, up two percent from 2007; (3) Twenty-nine (29) percent of 2008 high school graduates enrolled in the community and technical colleges in 2008-09 took no math or other quantitative reasoning courses during their first year of college and had no record of previously completing the math required for an associate degree. Colleges are implementing strategies to ensure that more students take math early in their time at college; and (4) Within three years of high school graduation, about half (45 percent) of all high school graduates have enrolled at a community or technical college in Washington. More than a third (35 percent) of high school graduates enroll immediately in community and technical colleges, and an additional 10 percent enroll within one or two years after high school graduation.
