The Literacy of America's College Students - This report finds that 20% of graduates of four-year programs and 30% of those earning two-year degrees lack the quantitative skills to do basic calculations. The report found that the mathematical skills of today's graduates are not any worse than those of previous generations, and that in other forms of literacy, today's graduates are doing better. (Justin D. Baer, Andrea L. Cook and Stephane Baldi, American Institutes for Research, January 2006)...
