ENTRANCE AND PLACEMENT TESTING.
BOGGS, JOHN R.; ROUECHE, JOHN E.
WHILE REPORTS ON THE USE OF STANDARDIZED TESTS IN JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE COMMONLY TABULATIONS OF SCORES, SOME COLLEGES HAVE STUDIED TOPICS SUCH AS THE RELATIONSHIP OF TEST SCORES TO GENERAL COLLEGE ACHIEVEMENT, VALIDITY OF TEST SCORES IN PREDICTING SUCCESS IN SPECIFIC COURSES, AND EVALUATION OF CHANGES IN STUDENTS DURING THEIR COLLEGE EXPERIENCES. FEW STANDARDIZED TESTS ADEQUATELY MEET THE MULTIPLE NEEDS OF COMPREHENSIVE JUNIOR COLLEGES, AND LACK OF APPROPRIATE DATA PREVENTS MAXIMUM UTILIZATION OF THOSE WHICH ARE AVAILABLE. MORE EFFECTIVE USE OF TESTS WOULD RESULT FROM (1) DEVELOPMENT OF PROFILES WHICH DESCRIBE TEST PERFORMANCE OF CLEARLY IDENTIFIED GROUPS, (2) DETERMINATION OF RELATIONSHIPS OF SPECIFIC TESTS TO DESIGNATED CURRICULAR OBJECTIVES, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS FOR FORMULATING OR REVISING OBJECTIVES ON THE BASIS OF TEST RESULTS, AND (4) DESIGN OF PROCEDURES TO ALLOW FOR STATISTICAL STATEMENTS AND CONCLUSIONS. THIS DOCUMENT IS VOLUME 2, NUMBER 5 OF "JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH REVIEW," JANUARY 1968. (WO)
