Life Experience Has Academic Value: Analysis of the Performance of 319 Missouri Women on Three Examinations of the College Level Entrance Program.
Fagin, Margaret C.
The performance of 319 Missouri women on the English, social science, and natural science College Level Entrance Examinations was analyzed. The sample comprised women from metropolitan St. Louis and nine rural areas in Northern Missouri. The typical participant was married; was a high school graduate; had 2.8 children; had participated in informal education; and was employed. The participants' mean score on the English examination was 462, as compared with a mean of 506 for 1189 freshmen and 516 for 1207 sophomore women. The women's performance on the Natural Science examination was the poorest of the three. The mean score for the total group of 319 was 409, representing about the 32nd. percentile for freshmen and the 25th. percentile for sophomores. Only 304 scores were available for the Social Sciences Examination. Scaled scores for these women ranged from 289 to 687, with a mean of 451, as compared with a mean of 463 for 277 freshmen and 481 for 297 sophomores. This was the only examination of which the mean score for women did not differ significantly from those for freshmen and sophomores. (Author/NL)
