Abstract:The purpose of this study is to obtain the perspective of students attending a rural community college in a Midwestern state regarding why they were placed into a remedial algebra course when enrolling directly out of high school. The study uses the concept of signaling to examine how students interpret signals from sources such as counselors, teachers, peers, and policies. Understanding how students use the plethora of signals sent from various sources, including what they discern to be signals, may help community colleges address the growing problem of remediation. This study has implications for K-12 and higher education by shedding light on the information students use to prepare for college.
