ACT National Curriculum Survey


"A new study by ACT points to a gap between what U.S. high schools are teaching in their core college preparatory courses, and what colleges want incoming students to know in order for them to succeed in first-year courses. The findings of the ACT National Curriculum Survey suggest that colleges generally want all incoming students to attain an in-depth understanding of a selected number of fundamental skills and knowledge in their high school courses, while high schools tend to provide less in-depth instruction of a broader range of skills and topics. ACT has been conducting surveys of this nature for roughly 30 years. Data from the organization's research has helped establish the most widely recognized definition of college readiness in the United States."
