Project Status: Current
Focus Area: Postsecondary Access & Success
Location: Tennessee

What are the short-term and long-term outcomes for students who participate in math “pre-remediation” as high-school seniors?

This is a study of senior-year math programs in Tennessee designed to “pre-remediate” students with low math achievement. This evaluation includes the SAILS (Seamless Alignment and Integrated Learning Support) Program, an innovative K-12 community college partnership that offers students a community college standards-aligned curriculum via a blended learning platform. By offering the equivalent of the college remedial math course to high school students during their senior year, SAILS allows students to simultaneously complete their fourth-year of high school math required for graduation while eliminating the need for remedial math coursework in college.
