Description

While most schools offer developmental courses, often the students who would most benefit from remediation do not enroll in recommended classes. Researchers used data from the National Education Longitudinal Study (high school class of 1992) to examine the nationwide availability of remediation courses, the demographic characteristics of the students who enroll in the classes, and the effects of remedial coursework on degree completion for various student populations at two- and four-year institutions.
