Rethinking Postsecondary Placement Policies and Processes

by Uri Treisman

My Dana Center colleague, Jenna Cullinane, and Jobs For the Future’s Lara Couturier have released a powerful report, A Call to Action to Improve Math Placement Policies and Processes. Their call to action offers six recommendations for how states and their public colleges might revise math placement policies, processes, and supports to ensure that STEM-interested students realize their professional aspirations.

I warmly encourage you to take a look.
