iROC: Remediation and Course Repetition

Oct 15

4:00 PM
Kaplan Library, DC 218

Remediation and Course Repetition: The Domino Effect on Academics and Economics

iROC - Investigating Research on Campus

Mount Saint Mary College nursing professors Susan Schulmerich and Teresa Hurley will present “Remediation and Course Repetition: The Domino Effect on Academics and Economics” on Thursday, October 15 at 4 pm at Mount Saint Mary College.

Part of the Mount’s Investigating Research on Campus (iROC) series, the talk will take place in the Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center on the Mount campus, 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

In the United States especially, say Schulmerich and Hurley, studies report the inability of students to meet the rigors of college, especially in regard to mathematics, reading, writing, and science.

Having conducted a study with a purpose to discribe the incidence and monetary costs associated with remediation, course repetitions, graduation delays, and passage rates on the American licensing exam, NCLEX-RN, Shulmerich and Hurley will showcase their methodology, findings, and conclusions.
