College Advanced Placement Policies, 1972.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
The Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board provides a practical way for schools and colleges to create and use common definitions of college-level courses, which, when completed in secondary school, prepare students for advanced study at college. In each field committees of examiners write course descriptions and construct the 3-hour qualifying examinations. It is hoped that participating colleges will be willing to grant advanced placement or credit, or both, to candidates who receive qualifying grades. In December 1971 the College Board sent a questionnaire to colleges and universities familiar with the program, seeking information on their advanced placement policies for freshmen entering in the fall of 1972. This book contains the information received in response to the questionnaire. The colleges offer the rough outlines of their advanced placement policies and the names of those officials to whom more detailed inquiry may be sent. (Author/HS)
