Progress in Education 1960-1970: A Sample Survey.
Jung, Steven M.
The symposium to which the present paper is an introduction presents results from a 1970 survey in which over 12,000 high school juniors were tested using selected portions of the 1960 Project TALENT battery. This paper discusses the methodology of the 1970 survey. It also presents statistics which summarize the performance of the current eleventh grade sample on the TALENT reading comprehension scale. These statistics indicate that little if any gain has been recorded in reading comprehension ability over the past decade. Such a finding appears to deserve considerable weight in suggesting directions for educational improvement efforts. (Author)
