Alaska’s Developmental Classes Endemic

In February, the University of Alaska published a report from the Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program (ANSEP) and UAA about the disconnect between Alaska high school grade point averages and college preparedness.

This report, which analyzed the 37 schools with 10 years of graduation data and 10 or more graduates enrolling in a University of Alaska school in 2015, found that approximately 61 percent of all Alaskan students attending UA require developmental classes.
