Indiana has taken a first step toward trying to get high school students remedial math and English help before they start college.
Ivy Tech officials estimate 70-percent of their students need remedial math, and other Indiana colleges say they have to bring some of their students up to speed, too.
Starting this year, high school sophomores who need more than two tries to pass the required end-of-course exam will take a college readiness test called AccuPlacer.
Ivy Tech associate vice president John Newby says the community college already uses the test, and has been urging other schools to join them.
