Seizing Twelfth Grade to Improve Math Readiness: Senior-Year Transition Courses

Date and Time: October 27, 2016 2:00–3:15 EDT
Location: Online

Faced with high proportions of students needing remedial math courses in college, education systems across the country are prioritizing the goal of improving college readiness. Approaches include both strengthening K-12 instruction and improving alignment with postsecondary expectations. One relatively new strategy that combines these approaches and links postsecondary institutions and K-12 school is the design of senior-year transition courses. These courses aim to ensure students are ready for the demands of college-level math courses. In this webinar, researchers and practitioners discussed efforts to implement transition courses and their success to date.
