Experimental Honors Project Evaluation Development and Student Selection. Final Report.
The preparatory steps for an evaluation of the honors program at Portland State University, Oregon and the selection of the gifted participants are described. Seventy-nine entering freshmen were selected in the proposed honors program on the basis of high College Entrance Exam verbal and mathematics scores. Sixty students were selected and formed into two groups of 30 each (one of each pair taking part in the honors curriculum). Evaluation showed no difference between the participants and controls as to continuance in school and reading or listening skills. A set of screening measures for the selection of successful honors participants was then developed. The proposed honors program is included. (Author/JM)
