Remediation Renovation: Creating Your Toolkit Using Strategies, an Encore

October 17, 2023
1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m. ET

Hosted by the Assessment SIG

Successful remediation is a key contributor to on-time progression rates. Remediation approaches vary in timing, maximum opportunities allowed per student, structure, preparation efforts, and faculty workload. This session will highlight the remediation practices of three programs. It will engage faculty and administrators who are responsible for remediation in table discussions, providing strategies for enhancing remediation at home institutions. Suggestions for assessing remediation program efficacy in terms of curricular outcomes, retention, and progression will be shared.


  • Compare various course remediation practices at three institutions, including summer course offerings, and skills-based remediation strategies.
  • Describe assessment strategies to evaluate the impact of remediation programs on curricular outcomes, retention, and on-time progression.
  • Develop approaches for managing faculty and student bandwidth, cognitive burden, and burnout associated with the additional workload of course remediation.
