Comparative Guidance and Placement Program: An Experimental Program for Junior Colleges. Progress Report.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
The purpose of the tests and services to become available from this program is to provide three types of information for use, by both junior colleges and entering students, as a basis for realistic decision making. Descriptions of (1) a student's educational and vocational interests, (2) his special abilities, particularly in relation to the academic programs available to him, and (3) his abilities in reading, written communication, and fundamental mathematics will help to place him in appropriate classes. Preliminary results indicate the basic tests in reading, English, and mathematics will be widely applicable in predicting academic success in nearly all curricular areas. The special abilities and various research instruments will have more limited predictive use. (MC)
