New Survey on Academic Development and Remediation

July 08, 2010

In the next several weeks some of you may be asked to participate in a randomly selected sample of institutions that aims to evaluate students' need for developmental or remedial courses. The survey is being sponsored by the National Assessment Governing Board, created by Congress in 1988 to oversee the National Assessment of Student Progress, also known as The Nation's Report Card.

The survey asks for information on tests used to evaluate entering students, such as ACT or SAT, and scores on these tests below which developmental or remedial courses are needed.

Institutional participation in this survey is voluntary.  The National Assessment Governing Board says that only aggregated information will be reported, and no individual institution's responses will be identified.
