Postsecondary Preparation and Remediation
The podcast of our February 26 seminar "Postsecondary Preparation and Remediation: Examining the Effect of the EAP at CSU" is now available. The speakers are Michal Kurlaender, Assistant Professor of Education policy at the University of California, Davis, and Jessica Howell, Assistant Professor of Economics at California State University, Sacramento. The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is an academic preparation program developed by the California Department of Education, the State Board of Education, and CSU. The stated purpose of the program, now in its fifth year, is to bridge the gap between K-12 educational standards in English and mathematics and the requirements and expectations of postsecondary education at the California State University. In this seminar Kurlaender and Howell discussed how participation in the Early Assessment Program affects college going behavior and the need for remediation in college. The speakers were introduced by PACE Executive Director David N. Plank.
