Number of Ohio College Students Requiring Remedial Coursework Continues to Drop

January 21, 2016 - 1:00 AM

The percentage of high school graduates requiring developmental coursework as they enter an Ohio public college or university dropped significantly in 2015.

Data in the recently published 2015 Ohio Remediation Report shows that the percentage of students needing remedial coursework decreased from 37 percent in 2014 to 32 percent in 2015. There also was a reduction in the number of students solely needing mathematics remediation (from 32 to 28 percent) and English remediation (from 16 to 13 percent) during the same period.

“In order to make sure that students are prepared to have successful futures, they must be prepared for the postsecondary education that will help them earn their bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees or other credentials,” said Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor John Carey. “The continued reduction in these numbers shows that our schools are having success in preparing students for the next steps on their career paths.”

The latest report continues a long-term trend of better student readiness. Five years ago, 41 percent of students needed remedial coursework, 35 percent needed mathematics remediation and 20 percent needed English remediation.

“It is encouraging that more Ohio students are leaving high school ready for their postsecondary education,” said Dr. Lonny J. Rivera, interim superintendent of public instruction at the Ohio Department of Education. “We will continue to make it a priority that students are prepared for college and careers after high school. Our efforts in recent years have done just that.”

Student preparation has improved since the implementation of the Remediation Free Standards, which went into effect in 2013-2014. That year, state law asked the presidents of Ohio’s public colleges and universities to establish uniform statewide standards in mathematics, science, reading and writing that every student enrolled at an Ohio public college or university must meet to be considered ready for college-level work.

Ohio’s consensus definition of college readiness provides a clear, consistent set of goals for students entering postsecondary education directly from high school.

The Ohio Remediation Report also contains recommendations for future strategies designed to keep the remediation numbers trending downward. Among the recommendations is continued collaboration among higher education institutions and P-12 partners to align academic standards to ensure that more students leave high school prepared for success at the next level.
