Remediation in the Community College: An Evaluator's Perspective
Levin, Henry M.; Calcagno, Juan Carlos
Community College Review, v35 n3 p181-207 2008
Remediation is the most common approach to preparing students academically and socially during their early stages of college. However, despite its profound importance and its significant costs, there is very little rigorous research analyzing its effectiveness. The goal of this article is to provide a conceptual framework for the evaluation of remedial education programs. Based on previous literature, we review a list of ingredients for successful interventions, present a number of approaches to remediation that make use of these ingredients, discuss alternative research designs for systematic evaluations, and enumerate basic data requirements. (Contains 16 notes.)
