FOREIGN LANGUAGE PLACEMENT, AUTUMN QUARTER, 1967.
BEANBLOSSOM, GARY
THIS REPORT, BASED ON TESTS GIVEN TO HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS IN THE SPRING, 1967, DESCRIBES THE SLIGHT CHANGES MADE IN TESTING PROCEDURES AND GIVES TEST AND PLACEMENT RESULTS FOR 2,646 STUDENTS IN FRENCH, GERMAN, SPANISH, AND LATIN. TENTATIVE PLACEMENT IN FRENCH, GERMAN, AND SPANISH WAS BASED ON SCORES OBTAINED ON MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION READING AND LISTENING COMPREHENSION TESTS, AND ADJUSTMENT TO FINAL PLACEMENT MADE BY MEANS OF DEPARTMENTAL GRAMMAR TESTS. FOR GERMAN, THIS ADJUSTMENT RESULTED IN A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS BEING SET BACK ONE COURSE. FOR LATIN STUDENTS THE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD TEST WAS REPLACED BY THE EDUCATIONAL TESTING SERVICE TEST. ALL THE TEST RESULTS ARE PRESENTED IN 25 TABLES GIVING PERCENTILE NORMS, MEANS, STANDARD DEVIATIONS, AND TENTATIVE AND FINAL COURSE PLACEMENTS ARRANGED ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDY AND THE LENGTH OF TIME SINCE HIGH SCHOOL STUDY.
