Session I was comprised of two presentations which focused on measurement problems at the preschool, early childhood, and preadolescent levels: Measurement of Cognitive Abilities at the Preschool and Early Childhood Level, by Dorothea A. McCarthy; and Prediction of Maladjustive Behavior, by William C. Kvaraceus. Two papers were presented at Session II, exemplifying basic and applied research: A Theory of Test Response, by Jane Loevinger; and Measurement and Prediction of Teacher Effectiveness, by David G. Ryans. Session III was composed of a panel which discussed: What Kinds of Tests for College Admission and Scholarship Programs, by Robert L. Ebel and by Alexander G. Wesman; Criteria for Selecting Tests for College Admissions and Scholarship Programs, by John C. Flanagan; and The Nature of the Problem of Improving Scholarship and College Entrance Examinations, by E. F. Lindquist. The luncheon address was delivered by Henry Chauncey and was entitled, Some Observations on Soviet Education. (MH)
