Update on 2012 Missouri Developmental Education Survey
Based on the commissioned report, Remedial Coursework in Postsecondary Education: The Students, Their Outcomes, and Strategies for Improvement, in October 2012, the MDHE staff administered the 2012 Missouri Developmental Education Survey to all public and independent Missouri postsecondary institutions. The purpose of this survey was to determine developmental education programs and practices currently in place. Results from the survey will serve as a foundation for policy development.
To date, 24 public and 10 independent institutions have responded to the survey.
