Preparing Underprepared Students for College: Remedial Education and Early Assessment Programs
Tierney, William G.; Garcia, Lisa D.
Journal of At-Risk Issues, v14 n2 p1-7 2008
Postsecondary level remediation has recently received a great deal of attention with the public questioning the efficacy of spending money on remedial classes, and scholars questioning whether such courses are effective in helping students graduate. The California State University (CSU) system has responded to the challenge of remediation by creating an Early Assessment Program (EAP). The authors discuss the EAP's strengths and weaknesses, questioning whether testing students is the best route to overcoming the problem of remediation. (Contains 1 table.)
