It just doesn t make sense

It just doesn’t make sense!

  • No great difference

    • Achievement Scores

      • Students appear to be as successful as ever

    • ACT Scores

      • Student scores have not changed substantially

      • A score of 19 for English 1101 placement

      • A score of 24 for English 1102 placement

      • A score of 13 for Math 1010 placement

      • A score of 18 for Math 1100 placement

    • Carnegie Units

      • Students seem to be taking more classes with less success!


A nd therefore

And therefore . . . .

  • The trend can be expected to continue.

  • Students will take and pass high school requirements, will graduate, and 50% or more will be placed remedially.

  • Fall 2010 –

    • 4200 students at SSU;

    • 910 slots for remedial English
