The Tennessee Board of Regents recently conducted a study of the state’s 13 public community colleges in scaling up corequisite remediation in math, reading, and writing. The study found that, although it resulted in a few small decreases in pass rates from a pilot similar to the current program, the increased corequisite remediation led to overall success for students completing credit-bearing courses compared to students who took prerequisite remedial courses in 2012.
According to Ashley Smith’s article, “Evidence of Remediation Success,” “Over all, 51 percent of students in a co-requisite math course this fall passed the college-level course, compared to 12.3 percent of students who began in a remediation course and completed a credit-bearing math class within an academic year in 2012.”
