Selective Admission of Teachers to Graduate Study.
Findley, Warren G.
A conference was held to set standards of admission to graduate study that were consonant with formal requirements and reflected a satisfactory minimum competence to master the content and methods of instruction. The best preparation for such tests is a good broad education. The issue of possible cultural bias in test questions had been raised, but, it is pointed out, attempts to correct for cultural bias are generally circular in logic. An analysis of the learning act is made. In conclusion, the question of the propriety of applying selective admissions criteria within the group of those whose admissions data indicate probability of being able to "pass" in the institution to which they seek admission is raised.
