A recent study conducted by the Education Commission of the States used a set of questions to identify state- and system-level policies that exist within each state that impact specific aspects of developmental education assessment and placement in postsecondary education. The findings were used to develop individual state profiles that note a state’s adoption of certain developmental education policies and further information on such policies.
An examination of the findings found that 31 states had an existing assessment or placement policy. Furthermore, less than half of all states possessed policies on uniform cut scores, multiple placement measures, and statutory reporting of developmental education outcomes.
