Everything I Needed to Know I DIDN'T Learn in High School

The U.S. Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has consolidated a wealth of information on the tested skills, coursework, and study efforts of high school students (and college students as well for study time) in several recently-issued products.

• Two pieces reviewing test score trends as far back as 1969, High School Test Scores in 8 Subjects, and a more detailed review of reading and math, in 4 Decades of Reading & Math Scores .

• A review of the type and amount of courses that high school students have taken since 1982, in High School Coursework Over 3 Decades

• A review of how much effort high school and college students devote to studying outside the classroom, in NOT Hitting the Books — Limited Homework and Studying Time in High School and College

ETA has also provided a guide to sources on the skills of U.S. workers, in Skimming for Skills: Finding Skills Data.
