A study recently reported that college admissions officers look at teacher recommendation forms for less than two minutes.
Which of the following would be the MOST logical suggestion to teachers based on the results of the study?
Teachers should continue to create two-page recommendations to ensure all information about the student can be included.
Teachers should ask students to compose the recommendation.
Teachers should create a bullet-point list of the student’s accolades and achievements.
Teachers should write a concise, half-page recommendation that provides an anecdote illustrating the student’s three best qualities.
Teachers should offer their phone numbers at the bottom of the letters of recommendation so that admissions officers will be able to call the teachers to get more information about the students.
