Pearson recently released a series of infographics, that explore three critical areas of college readiness: pre-college, entry/assessment/placement, and developmental education. These graphics were created in order to better understand the state of college readiness. Some of Pearson’s findings include;
- The non-traditional student: 75% of students are college commuters, often juggling families, jobs and school
- College bound seniors & the SAT: 57% did not meet the SAT® College & Career Readiness Benchmark
- 50% of those seeking an associate degree require remediation
- 20.7% of those seeking a bachelor degree require remediation
