Trustees Heard an Update on the Focus: 2024 Strategic Plan – Nevada System of Higher Education Remediation Rates
Trustees received a presentation on remediation rates from NSHE institutions, including UNLV, UNR, and CSN. Highlights included:
- Data for remediation rates this year are unavailable due to a change in the NSHE dashboard and shift to a co-requisite model.
- There is no standard definition of what makes a remedial course. Data variations by state and institution make it impossible to compare our state with others.
- CCSD is strategizing around systemic efforts to mitigate remediation needs in college. Efforts are going towards creating consistency in master schedule design, maximize ability to offer advanced-level coursework.
