Remedial Education and Completing College: Exploring Differences by Credential and Institutional Level

Full Description: 

This article, published in The Journal of Higher Education, reports on this study that compared the postsecondary outcomes of students who enrolled in remedial (sometimes called “developmental”) courses in college and their peers who did not. The analysis examined the relationship between postsecondary remediation and the odds of achieving 3 postsecondary outcomes and explored how these relationships varied between students attending colleges at the 2-year and 4-year levels.
