Report on the Revision of the NASSP Secondary-School Record.
Bussis, Anne M.
The Secondary School Record and its accompanying Personality Record (published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals) had been widely used for communicating information to colleges about a student's academic record, personal characteristics, interests, activities and other achievements. In 1962, it was decided that a complete revision of the form was needed to assure better communication of information between high schools and colleges. This report discusses: (1) the basic rationale of the revision; (2) the initial studies of the old form which led to the first experimental revision; (3) local pretesting of the first revision and development of the second experimental revision; (4) review and national pretesting of the second revision; (5) development of the final specifications for the revised forms; and (6) suggestions for future research and development. The forms used in the various revisions are included in the appendices. (AF)
