Survey of Graduate Schools Regarding the Use of the Graduate School Foreign Language Tests, 1969-70.
Harvey, Philip R.
Member institutions of the Council of Graduate Schools were asked to respond to a questionnaire about the foreign language requirements at their institutions. Institutions (197) or 69 percent of those contacted responded. One hundred twenty-four schools used the Graduate Schools Foreign Language Tests (GSFLT) for the purpose of meeting the foreign language requirement for an advanced degree. Of these 124, 108 accepted the GSFLT scores when students had taken the tests prior to matriculation in graduate school, and these 69 answered that there was no limit on the number of years prior to matriculation that the tests may be taken. Of those schools that did not use the GSFLT, 11 indicated they planned to do so in the future, 22 did not, and 44 were undecided. Ninety-six of the institutions had a graduate school-wide foreign language requirement for advanced level degrees, and 96 did not. In the last question, institutions with no across the board requirements were asked to indicate which departments had established separate foreign language requirements, and whether these requirements might be met by taking the GSFLT or a locally prepared examination.
