Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies & Science Appendix A: Findings Students who fall short of ACT's college readiness benchmarks have the greatest difficulty with the test items involving the most complex text. K-12 reading assignments have become much less demanding in the last half-century, with an especially large drop-off in high school expectations. Weston, S. P.

Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies & Science Appendix A: Findings College reading assignments have moved in the opposite direction, becoming a bit harder over the same fifty years. High school teachers commonly give students many kinds of support and coaching to help them figure out the material, but college teachers expect students to pull the knowledge from the text on their own, making the gap in practical ability even wider than the gap in the texts themselves.
