Academic Pre-Planning: The Key to Academic Rigor
Dr. Lesa Seibert
Academic rigor deals with complexity. A student may be able to recall 100 details from memory and receive a 100% on a test. However, remembering, while often difficult, does not demonstrate complexity (i.e., academic rigor). A course with academic rigor will emphasize mastery skills and will contain assessments in which the students demonstrate those skills.
