The Fall, 1969 Guidance Examination: A Report on Some Proposed New Tests.
Gold, Ben K.
Test performance statistics and subsequent academic achievement data for Los Angeles City College (LACC), California, students entering in the fall of 1969 are reported in this study. The test performance statistics provide a relative comparison between achievement on the School and College Ability Test (SCAT), the Form 1A Reading Comprehension: Cooperative Reading Test (reading and vocabulary), and an essay constructed by members of the LACC English Department. Data are arrayed in terms of both the entire test population and sub-groups of males, females, students from predominantly Black high schools, and students from foreign high schools. Observations concerning performance by individual sub-groups are included, along with correlation findings of .63, .88, and .79 between the SCAT, and the essay, vocabulary, and reading tests respectively. Subsequent studies will report on examinations (excluding SCAT) given in the spring of 1970, along with attempts to measure student opinion of the examination procedure.
