Open Access Graduate Research Paper
American colleges and universities are coming to grips with a problem regarding the admission of students direct from high school. Administrators, faculty members, parents and even students have voiced a concern that high school students are insufficiently encouraged to select college preparatory courses. Most colleges and universities have based admission decisions on high school grade point averages and college entrance examination scores. Therefore, many high school students have opted for less demanding courses, and for the relative ease of earning high grades, but subsequently enter postsecondary institutions with insufficient background in some critical subject matter areas (Estee, 1983).
