CORRELATIONS OF RESULTS IN MATRICULATION GERMAN IN QUEENSLAND.
DIEFENBACH, H. J.
TO FIND THE CORRELATION BETWEEN FINAL RESULTS AND MARKS GAINED IN THE WRITTEN AND ORAL PARTS OF THE 1964 SENIOR GERMAN EXAMINATION, THE RESULTS OF THE TESTS OF 674 CANDIDATES WERE EXAMINED. THIS EXAMINATION, HELD AFTER THE FOURTH YEAR OF SECONDARY SCHOOLING AND USED AS A BASIS FOR UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND MATRICULATION, CONSISTED OF--(1) THE ORAL PART (PREPARED AND UNPREPARED READING, AND DICTATION) CARRIES 10 PERCENT, AND (2) THE WRITTEN PART (A 3-HOUR PAPER) CARRIES 90 PERCENT. THERE WAS A HIGH CORRELATION BETWEEN WRITTEN AND FINAL RESULTS IN THAT 95.25 PERCENT OF ALL CANDIDATES HAD THE SAME FINAL AS WRITTEN GRADE, BUT ONLY 54.3 PERCENT HAD THE SAME FINAL AS ORAL GRADE. OF THOSE WHO PASSED IN THE FINAL RESULT, 94.3 PERCENT ALSO PASSED THE ORAL, AND 56.6 PERCENT OF THOSE WHO FAILED IN THE FINAL ALSO FAILED THE ORAL. THE HIGHEST CORRELATION IS AT THE TWO EXTREMES-- OF THOSE WHO OBTAINED A FINAL "A," NONE FAILED THE ORAL, AND OF THOSE WHO FAILED THE ORAL, NONE GAINED A FINAL "A." OF THE FINAL "A" STUDENTS, 81.4 PERCENT GAINED AN "A" FOR THE DICTATION, BUT ONLY 57.2 PERCENT AN "A" FOR THE READING. OF THOSE WHO FAILED IN THE FINAL, ONLY 14.6 PERCENT FAILED THE READING, BUT 75.3 PERCENT FAILED THE DICTATION. DETAILED FIGURES ARE FOUND IN EIGHT APPENDIXES. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "BABEL," VOLUME 2, NUMBER 2, JULY 1966. (AUTHOR)
