Academic Rigor in the College Classroom: Two Federal Commissions Strive to Define Rigor in the Past 70 Years
Francis, Clay
New Directions for Higher Education, n181 p25-34 Spr 2018
Historic notions of academic rigor usually follow from critiques of the system--we often define our goals for academically rigorous work through the lens of our shortcomings. This chapter discusses how the Truman Commission in 1947 and the Spellings Commission in 2006 shaped the way we think about academic rigor in today's context.
