Aligning Postsecondary Expectations and High School Practice: The Gap Defined. Policy Implications of the ACT National Curriculum Survey[R] Results, 2005-2006
ACT, Inc.
This report highlights the key findings of the ACT National Curriculum Survey, a nationwide survey of educational practices and expectations conducted by ACT every three to five years. This survey tells us what postsecondary institutions believe is important and necessary for their entering students to know and what middle and high school teachers are teaching. It focuses, therefore, on identifying the gap between postsecondary expectations and high school practice. Following these highlights, the report presents implications of the survey results for education policy and practice. The final section presents action steps suggested by the results. The Appendix contains additional information about the survey sampling process. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
