The increasing diversity of the college student population has been a major theme throughout this course. With diversity comes different sets of knowledge, skills, abilities, and valuesin short, a different level of preparation for college work. This coincides with an ever-increasing emphasis on accountability in higher educationa demand that all college graduates demonstrate mastery of the same critical skills.
Consider the following questions:
- Is it reasonable to expect all students to achieve the same learning outcomes?
- Based on Pascarella & Terenzini’s description of the research on between- and within-college effects, what kinds of strategies can higher education professionals use to “level the playing field” for diverse students?
