STUDIES IN THE DISCOVERY AND GUIDANCE OF SUPERIOR STUDENTS
ROTHNEY, JOHN W.M.
A RESEARCH AND GUIDANCE LABORATORY WAS SET UP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN. THE SUBJECTS WERE SUPERIOR STUDENTS CHOSEN FROM OVER A HUNDRED WISCONSIN HIGH SCHOOLS. THE STUDENTS WERE TESTED AND COUNSELED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR FROM NINTH GRADE THROUGH GRADUATION. THE LABORATORY PERMITTED EXHAUSTIVE STUDIES ON THE CHARACTERISTICS, DEVELOPMENT, AND GUIDANCE OF SUPERIOR STUDENTS. AN INITIAL STUDY PURSUING THE ANALYSIS OF PERSONAL DOCUMENTS WRITTEN BY SUPERIOR STUDENTS SEEMED TO PROVIDE A WAY TO SEE, IN PART, THE INNER HALF OF AN ADOLESCENT THAT DOES NOT ALWAYS BECOME APPARENT TO THOSE WHO OBSERVE AND TEST HIM. A SECOND STUDY USED ORAL PROBLEM-SOLVING PERFORMANCES OF SUPERIOR STUDENTS AS ONE MEANS OF EVALUATING THE PROCESSES OF REASONING AND PROVIDING EFFECTIVE COUNSELING TECHNIQUES IN PROBLEM-SOLVING. A THIRD STUDY SHOWED THE CORRELATION BETWEEN GUIDANCE COUNSELORS' PREDICTIONS OF POSTHIGH SCHOOL WORK THROUGH PERSONAL EVALUATIONS AND APTITUDE TEST AND THE STUDENTS' ACTUAL PERFORMANCE IN COLLEGE. THE TEST IS AS YET INCOMPLETE.
