A Common Framework for Remedial Reporting: Response to Remedial Reporting Task Force Recommendations
Gianneschi, Matt; Fulton, Mary
Education Commission of the States
In December 2013, the Education Commission of the States (ECS) convened a steering committee of state education policy leaders from throughout the nation to discuss the implications of the inconsistent remedial education reporting practices in the states. After the conversation, the Remedial Reporting Steering Committee--which included elected officials, chief state school officers, state higher education executive officers, and numerous education policy experts--advanced two recommendations: (1) States should work together to develop and implement standard procedures for measuring and reporting placement into and progression through remedial instruction; and (2) In developing these new procedures, states should create a dynamic, comprehensive measurement methodology focused on progress and success rather than state-level accountability or comparative rankings. This report explores the two recommendations for consistent remedial education reporting practices. The full report from the convening, "A Cure for Remedial Reporting Chaos: Why the U.S. Needs a Standard Method for Measuring Preparedness for the First Year of College," (see ED561915) includes details of state-level reporting practices, and is available from ECS. The following is appended: Proposed Common Framework for Reporting on Student Placement and Progress. [This report is part of the ECS Remedial Education Reporting Project.]
