Academic Advisors Need to Better Comprehend College Readiness to Develop Strategies for Student Success
As a means to address the number of citizens with college degrees in the United States, college readiness is a commonly proposed approach toward enhancing student success. This is significant as it has been estimated that “almost two-thirds of all jobs in the [US] . . . require a postsecondary degree.” Most administrators and academic advisors would like to better cognize the level of readiness of incoming students and how this impacts eventual success, especially as more students are attending institutions of higher education than ever before. It is widely accepted that students who enter college with proper reading, writing, time management, and study skills should enjoy higher levels of academic success and eventually graduate.
