Mathematics plays a fundamental role as a gateway to higher education. Besides the general education mathematics courses that students typically take to earn a degree, a large proportion of students are assigned to postsecondary remedial math courses when they arrive in college. Join us to hear about how college and university math faculty in two states are revising statewide policies and practices for these sequences. The goal is to position all students to succeed in college and beyond.

Webinar 2 – Improving the Targeting of Treatment: Emerging Research on Postsecondary Math Placement Policies
June 8, 11am – 12:15pm Pacific (2pm – 3:15pm Eastern)
Recent research on college remediation has revealed the limitations of traditional placement tests and practices for accurately measuring the capacity of students in mathematics. These limitations raise the possibility that large proportions of college students are being under-placed and required to repeat courses they’ve successfully completed in high school, delaying or deterring their progress to a degree. Some higher education institutions are developing new assessment policies with a goal of improving math readiness, college success, and equity in student outcomes. Join this webinar to explore the research and implementation efforts.
