ANALYSIS OF S.C.A.T. ENTRANCE EXAMINATION, FALL 1964.
GOLD, BENJAMIN K.
LITTLE DIFFERENCE IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THE 4,502 STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE APTITUDE TEST IN FALL 1964 AND THAT OF STUDENTS OVER THE PREVIOUS 7 YEARS CAN BE NOTED. PERFORMANCE HAS REMAINED CONSISTENTLY BELOW THE NATIONAL NORM, ESPECIALLY IN THE QUANTITATIVE AREA. MALE PERFORMANCE WAS BETTER THAN THAT OF FEMALES. THERE IS LITTLE CORRELATION BETWEEN SCORES AND AGE. THE PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS FROM SOUTHERN STATES WAS THE POOREST OF ANY GROUP. ONE-FOURTH OF ALL STUDENTS TAKING THE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION HAD ATTENDED COLLEGE PREVIOUSLY, AND THEIR PERFORMANCE WAS DEFINITELY SUPERIOR TO THAT OF THE FIRST-TIME STUDENTS. (HS)
