Sixty percent of first-time community college students and 29% of first-time university
students were themselves in need of postsecondary developmental education (Bailey & Alfonso,
2007). Adequately preparing high school students to transition into college entry-level
coursework successfully, without remediation, continued to be at the forefront of both secondary
and higher education discussion. A review of literature revealed abundant information on the
characteristics and attributes higher education believed high school students must possess in
order to matriculate into entry-level college coursework successfully. But the review of
literature found limited information concerning campus-level indicators, campus-level
predictors, or other potential campus-level factors that had the highest probability of producing
the greatest high school student postsecondary readiness and success. Once these programs,
strategies, and initiatives were identified, recommendations were made to secondary educators to
help them understand and identify which of their programs, and ultimately which of their
students, would be more likely to begin entry-level college coursework without the need of
developmental education. Chapter 3 included details pertaining to the purpose and design of this
study, as well as the guiding questions and an examination of the key variables under
