The study, included in NYU Professor of Sociology Richard Arum’s new book Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses, surveyed more 3,000 students with an average GPA of 3.2. The students surveyed were asked to take a standardized test covering skills students are expected to garner from an undergraduate education, and only 36 percent showed improvement after four years of college.
