Access back issues"Our research suggests that if, as a discipline, we wish to better serve the learning needs of students, and if educators working in postsecondary writing wish to be able to meaningfully and knowledgeably participate in the public discourse about remedial education, we need to look carefully at the placement mechanisms we use to sort students into their first-year courses. Not only is placement students' first contact with college English, but it is also the critical moment that has the potential to profoundly shape a student's experience in college—including whether they will be retained or lost to higher education altogether."
