Blurb/Shorttext:
This research explored the factors that influence the placement of four-year college students into pre-college level courses. Based upon this literature review, it appeared that some of the variables that could predict the placement of university students into pre-college level mathematics courses were age, gender, length of time since previous math course, previous teacher's methodology, and need for concurrent enrollment in pre-college level English courses. This study revealed distinct differences between the group requiring only pre-college level math courses and the groups requiring remedial English. The most significant predictors for determining placement appearing to be age, gender, major, time span, and self perception. This study concluded with a discussion of the needs of related future research.
