The Eroding Standards Issue: A Case Study from the University of Waterloo.
Miller, Susan; Goyder, John
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v30 n3 p57-78 2000
Investigated the proposition that the mathematics skills of first year entrants into the faculties of mathematics, engineering, science, and applied health sciences have declined at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Scores from diagnostic tests show a decline to the mid 1990s, but scores then level out. A survey completed by 52 faculty members supports the idea of a decline in mathematics skills that has leveled off. (SLD)
