|Figure 22-1: Percentage of first-year undergraduate students who ever took a remedial education course, by institution control and level: 2007-08|
NOTE: Although these data are for first-year undergraduates, student status was determined by accumulation of credits. Students attending postsecondary education part time, or not completing the credit accumulation requirements for second-year status, could be considered first-year students for more than 1 year. Therefore, there is a distinction between having "ever" taken a remedial course and having taken one in 2007–08. Data are based on a sample survey of students who enrolled at any time during the school year. Data include the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
