||College Students Lack Literacy For Complex Tasks
- ore than half of students at four-year colleges
-- and at least 75 percent at two-year colleges -- lack the literacy to handle
complex, real-life tasks such as understanding credit card offers,
- students fail to lock
in key skills
- They cannot interpret a table about exercise
and blood pressure, understand the arguments of newspaper editorials, compare
credit card offers with different interest rates and annual fees or summarize
results of a survey about parental involvement in school.
- "States have no idea about the knowledge
and skills of their college graduates."
- Almost 20 percent of students pursuing four-year degrees had only
basic quantitative skills. For example, the students could not estimate if
their car had enough gas to get to the service station. About 30 percent
of two-year students had only basic math skills.
