The Relationship between Increased Academic Standards and Student Achievement at the College Level.
Wright, Theodore J.; Cistone, Peter J.
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v2 n1 p75-89 Fall 1994
Describes a study investigating the academic relationship between passing standards on Florida's College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) and student achievement as measured by CLAST. Discusses assumptions underpinning the phased-in implementation of twice raised CLAST passing standards. Indicates that increased academic standards failed to produce expected performance effects because students were inadequately informed of the higher expectations. (MAB)
