Source:http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/01/...
Date:2009
Organization:Center for American Progress
Short Description:This paper reviews the research and makes the case for a definition of postsecondary readiness that includes academic rigor, grades, specific academic skills that students will need to be successful in a college level course, and “college knowledge”— knowledge about how to apply, enroll, and succeed in a college environment.
Annotation:This paper reviews the research and makes the case for a definition of postsecondary readiness that includes academic rigor, grades, specific academic skills that students will need to be successful in a college level course, and “college knowledge”— knowledge about how to apply, enroll, and succeed in a college environment. It may be difficult to come up with objective measures for all these aspects of college readiness, but it is important to consider them all in defining readiness and in helping students meet a threshold of it.
