4. Remediation and Developmental Education

Cumberland County College uses Accuplacer© for testing and placement of entering degree-seeking students.  The total number of students tested and needing remediation in at least one skill area in Fall 2007, Fall 2008, and in Fall 2009 are shown in the tables below.  Note that data for Fall 2009 reflect changes in the scores required for students to place into college-level courses.  These changes were implemented to standardize cut scores across the sector, but resulted in higher number of students needing remediation by skill area
