New Evidence on College Remediation
Attewell, Paul A.; Lavin, David E.; Domina, Thurston; Levey, Tania
Journal of Higher Education, v77 n5 p886-924 Sep-Oct 2006
Using college transcripts, we separate the effects of remedial coursework from high school preparation. For two-year colleges, taking remedial classes was "not" associated with less academic success. In four-year colleges, there "are" negative effects of remedial coursework, but many minority students who complete a bachelor's degree do so after taking remediation. (Contains 6 tables.)
