Beanblossom, Gary F.
This report, based on the 1968 University of Washington testing and placement program for French, Spanish, German, and Latin, describes the test and placement procedures and gives the results for the 3,631 university students involved in the program. For each language, the combination of tests (Modern Language Association, Educational Testing Service, and department-constructed versions) used and the role of each test are identified. Thirteen tables, summarizing testing results, include such information as standard deviations, high school study sequence, time lapse in study pattern, tentative and final placement categories, and percentages assigned to each course. Also commented on briefly is relevant research being performed. For companion documents see ED 016 436 and ED 017 224. (AF)
