Adapting Placement Practices

Using high school GPA to determine how much support students will need to succeed in college-level English and mathematics courses is a viable alternative to placement testing. Here are the slides from John Hetts' presentation at our 2019 Virtual Michigan Student Success Netowork meeting and some peer-reviewed research suggesting that students' self-reported high school GPA does not differ significantly from official transcripts.

Here's new post from the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin that pulls together recent research on the advantages--both in accuracy and equity--of using high school GPA for placement.
