Nevada State College
Under Nevada State College's old math placement policy, incoming students took the Accuplacer exam during the summer prior to new-student orientation. Historically, about 75% of those students placed into remedial math based on their Accuplacer scores or their scores from a previous SAT or ACT examination.
In 2016, the institution began using EdReady as an initial placement diagnostic and as an independent-study remediation option for students to use before they arrived on campus. This move gave students the ability to increase their EdReady scores—and, thus, their math placement—enabling a significant number of students to avoid taking a remedial math course.
The goal is to remove all of the bottlenecks and give students at least one successful math experience in their lives. With EdReady, it’s needless to say: We, and our students, are thrilled.
