Moore, Randy – Journal of Developmental Education, 2004
Most colleges and universities emphasize identifying smartness much more than developing smartness.

Kuh, George D.; Pascarella, Ernest T. – Change, 2004
In the minds of most people, the best colleges are those that are the most selective. The purpose of this document is to discover if students at more selective institutions have or take greater advantage of learning opportunities. Two independent datasets were used to research this idea. The first is the National Study of Student Learning (NSSL),…

Students are segregated by their financial-aid status with different demand equations…

Camara, Wayne J. – College Entrance Examination Board, 2003
Previous research on differences in the reliability, validity, and difficulty of essay tests given under different timing conditions has indicated that giving examinees more time to complete an essay may raise their scores to a certain extent, but does not change the meaning of those scores, or the rank ordering of students. There is no evidence…
