When it comes to placement and developmental education, what are we doing right and not so right? In 2013, North Carolina implemented a multiple measures of placement policy that evolved as colleges learned more about how students succeed. The current placement model includes scaled supports, including corequisite models, based on high school GPA. This presentation will shed more light on what college readiness is, and how our efforts to reform placement and academic supports are making things significantly better for students.
