Got study skills?

According to ACT’s 2016 National Curriculum Survey, study skills are clearly the weak link of college readiness. This report coincides with Achieve’s extensive college-readiness survey  where work habits and study skills also topped the area in which students are least prepared for the demands of postsecondary work.

Study Skills CoverBoth surveys confirm what we have been saying all along: College readiness is far more than what students know — it’s about how they learn. To prepare for the academic demands of high school and postsecondary coursework, students must develop productive learning skills and strategies for the acquisition, retention, and demonstration of knowledge. Many students are simply not learning the skills and strategies they need in order to succeed at the postsecondary level
