Evaluation of Experimental Tests Administered Spring 1969 with the Standard Washington Pre-College Test Battery.
Lunneborg, Clifford; Lunneborg, Patricia W.
The Washington Pre-College (WPC) Testing Program, together with experimental tests administered in Spring 1969, was analyzed to instigate a new guidance system for high school juniors and seniors. Initially, WPC employed predictors established on an already selected intellectual group. New test predictors were needed to match the complexity of the differences in educational opportunities, both vocational and academic, open to high school seniors. The Spring 1969 testing yielded predictive measures on 27,000 juniors. Item analysis resulted in shortened forms of all standard tests of the battery and revised forms of experimental tests. Based on this information and correlations among all tests, recommendations are made for WPC placement testing of seniors in Spring 1970. References are included. (Author/ES)
