The Qualifying Examination in English at Iowa State University.
Palmer, Raymond C.
Iowa English Yearbook, n11 p26-8 Fall 1966
For 25 years Iowa State University has required undergraduate seniors and first-year graduate students to pass a qualifying examination in English consisting of a theme on an assigned topic. A student may repeat the examination till he passes, and he may meanwhile receive extra instruction from the writing clinic. Despite a rejection of one fifth of the papers submitted, and the occasional problems of plagiarism, the English staff has never wavered in its support of the examination. (BN)
