Although more and more students have the test scores and transcripts to get into college, far too many are struggling once they get there. These students are surprised to find that college coursework demands so much more of them than high school. For the first time, they are asked to think deeply, write extensively, document assertions, solve non-routine problems, apply concepts, and accept unvarnished critiques of their work. College Knowledge confronts this problem by looking at the disconnect between what high schools do and what colleges expect and proposes a solution by identifying what students need to know and be able to do in order to succeed. The book is based on an extensive three-year project sponsored by the Association of American Universities in partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts. This landmark research identified what it takes to succeed in entry-level university courses. Based on the project's findings - and interviews with students, faculty, and staff - this groundbreaking book delineates the cognitive skills and subject area knowledge that college-bound students need to master in order to succeed in today's colleges and universities. These Standards for Success cover the major subject areas of English, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, second languages, and the arts.

Practical advice on every aspect of campus life for students headed off to college What educators and students have to say about David Schoem's College Knowledge: "David Schoem is a devoted teacher. He recognizes the challenges of preparing to be a responsible, compassionate, successful adult in the twenty-first century. He has written a book that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of its readers." ---Jeffrey Lehman, President, Cornell University "College Knowledge is full of wise, straight-to-the-point guidance for success both in and out of the classroom. Every first-year student should read-a--nd heed---David Schoem's advice. Though written for students, parents of first-year students can learn from it, too!" ---Beverly Daniel Tatum, President, Spelman College "College Knowledge is a deceptively straightforward guide appropriate for any student entering higher education. As both a parent and an educator, I highly recommend this sage, yet easy-to-digest guide as a must for the college-bound young adult." ---Pamela Horne, Director of Admissions, Michigan State University "Professor Schoem's insights and encouragement helped me to create many of my most satisfying and lasting experiences during college. This book captures his infectious enthusiasm and will inspire readers to take risks in exploring all that college has to offer." ---Miriam Vogel, former Schoem student

Understanding how and why college education contributes to effective job performance may be helpful in preparing students for the world of work. Personal accounts of college graduates place college education in the context of other learning experiences that occurred before and after the college years. Seventy companies representing a variety of employment settings selected 524 respondents who exhibited very good job performance. Extensive history questionnaires filled out by the respondents illustrate patterns of development that led to successful work outcomes. A comparison of graduates of the mid-sixties and mid-seventies shows how various life experiences may contribute differently to various career stages. Responses from both groups indicate that the work-related benefits of college do not occur in isolation but, rather, build on earlier life experiences and provide a foundation for growth. A variety of college experiences can enhance work effectiveness in many ways. The profits to be gained from college education also depend on the students, their selection of courses, approach to learning, and ability to capitalize on what they have learned. Respondents counseled against overspecialization, emphasizing the importance of flexibility and adaptability. (NRB)
