How colleges try to improve placement

Community colleges are trying to do a better job of evaluating new students and placing them in the right classes, according to a new study from the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia.

Researchers looked at assessment and placement at two-year colleges in Georgia, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
