*	Community colleges in California might be able to significantly
reduce the need for remedial education among students by using the results
of 11th grade state testing to better direct students prior to enrollment,
says a new report
<http://www.calpass.org/CurrentReports/LeveragingCAStandardsTest.pdf>  from
the California Partnership for Achieving Student Success, known as Cal-PASS.
California State University campuses have had success in reducing the need
for remediation by using high school results to show students very
specifically what they need to do to be college-ready by the time they leave
high school, and the report says community colleges could have similar
results.
