White, Edward M.
The sixth administration of the California State University and Colleges Freshman English Equivalency Examination, a test consisting of an objective examination scored by California State University and College faculty, is analyzed in this report. After a preface and short index of previous volumes, the first section of the report contains a summary and fact sheet describing the test, its results, and studies being undertaken to examine the results. The next section recounts the actual administration of the test. The section on the examination's two essay questions consists of three subsections, two containing a report from the question leader, the question itself, the directions to graders, and six sample student papers for each of the questions, and the third listing the essay readers. Section four presents a statistical report on the examination scores. The report's four appendixes contain the examination's budget, a survey of student sources of information on the examination, a report from the California State University and Colleges English Council Test Committee on the 1978 examination, and a summary report of descriptive statistics.
