According to Achieve’s extensive college-readiness survey, work habits and study skills top the area in which students are least prepared for the demands of postsecondary work. Many students fail or underperform in college courses because of poor and unproductive learning skills. Not only is remediation demoralizing, it’s expensive! To be prepared for the academic demands of postsecondary coursework, students must develop and habituate productive learning skills and strategies.
