THE COUNCIL ON COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATIONS AND THE COMPREHENSIVE COLLEGE TESTS.
BURNS, RICHARD L.
THE TESTS ARE MEANS AVAILABLE TO THE INDIVIDUAL TO SEEK RECOGNITION FOR LEARNING OBTAINED FROM A CORRESPONDENCE COURSE, PRIVATE INSTRUCTION, TV COURSES, ON-THE-JOB TRAINING, GROUP DISCUSSIONS, AND PRIVATE LECTURES. THE COUNCIL BELIEVES THAT ACADEMIC CREDIT BY EXAMINATION FOR THESE UNAFFILIATED STUDENTS IS THE KEY TO THE FLEXIBILITY, INNOVATION, AND INDEPENDENT STUDY THAT WILL BE ESSENTIAL IN EDUCATION IN THE FUTURE. OTHER USES OF THE TESTS INCLUDE ASSISTANCE WITH THE EVALUATION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS, EVALUATION OF FOREIGN STUDENT EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS, AND INSTITUTION SELF-EVALUATION. FIVE GENERAL EXAMINATIONS COVERING ENGLISH COMPOSITION, HUMANITIES, MATHEMATICS, NATURAL SCIENCE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCE-HISTORY ARE DESIGNED TO MEASURE UNDERGRADUATE ACHIEVEMENT. FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE NORMS ARE BASED ON A SAMPLE OF ENROLLEES IN 2- AND 4-YEAR COLLEGES. SPECIFIC SUBJECT EXAMINATIONS ARE DEVELOPED FOR WIDELY TAUGHT UNDERGRADUATE COURSES AND MAY BE USED TO AWARD CREDIT FOR THE COURSE IN QUESTION. THESE NORMS ARE BASED ON COLLEGE STUDENTS COMPLETING COURSES IN THE AREAS BEING TESTED. THIS SPEECH WAS PREPARED FOR THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (WASHINGTON, D.C., SESSION 290, APRIL 6, 1966). (RM)
