A Survey of Professional Licensure Examinations in Texas.
Texas Coll. and Univ. System, Austin. Coordinating Board.
A determination was made of how graduates of Texas professional education programs perform on licensure examinations in comparison with their counterparts in other states. Test scores of Texas graduates were compared with national norms and averages in other states, when available, as well as with scores of graduates of out-of-state programs who take the Texas examinations. Most of the statistical information was provided by the state regulatory agencies administering the examinations, although in some cases national agencies and special studies supplied the data. Thirteen professional areas are covered: architecture, certified public accountancy, dentistry, dental hygiene, engineering, law, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, psychology, and veterinary medicine. In each case the study results are summarized and some data provided in tables. (MSE)
