In this chapter, the researcher provides a comprehensive review of this study concerning
the predictive relationship high school campus-level factors have with first-year college student
remediation. The researcher develops the premise that high school student college readiness is
an educational enigma that consistently challenges secondary school and postsecondary
educators. As compared to past generations, today's graduating high school students are finding
their world to be both global and knowledge-based. First-year college students are discovering
higher levels of knowledge and application are now required as compared to the manufacturing
economies of the past century. The National Center for Education Statistics reported in 1973,
individuals with a high school education make up 72% of the nation's workforce (NCES, 2013a).
By 2007, this percentage had fallen to 41%. This trend is expected to continue. By 2020, 65%
of all jobs will require some form of postsecondary education or training. It is estimated 11% of
all jobs will require a master's degree or higher; 24% will require a bachelor's degree; 12% will
require an associate's degree; and 18% will require some postsecondary training or industry
credential but no formal degree (NCES, 2013a).
As greater numbers of graduating high school students continue to be enrolled into
institutions of higher education, the challenge of adequately preparing these students for
postsecondary success will be paramount. This study's results support prior educational research
in identifying campus-level factors that can be used to predict a student's enrollment into
college-level remediation. Secondary school educators can use this information to expand their
knowledge of which of their students have the highest probability of being in need of
remediation at the college level. Postsecondary educators can use this information to help
