The impact of the College Level Examination Project (CLEP) upon the total community has been good but not widespread enough to be classified "successful." Within the academic community there has been the overwhelming acceptance of CLEP and a continuing upgrading of credits to the benefit of the student, with a growing standardization of acceptable scores from institution to institution. The Regional Office of CEEB attributes these successes largely to the Dallas Public Library Independent Study Project (ISP). ISP has been included in newspaper articles as a worthwhile opportunity for persons in the community, including returning veterans. The Project was listed as one of the "major achievements" in a Goals for Dallas Program progress report. Students and prospective students call the Project Office daily and express appreciation for the "beautiful program." Librarians at the five Branch Libraries hear from pleased students. The analysis of data collected by a telephone questionnaire survey of participants is divided into seven areas: (1) The ISP Newsletter, (2) Branch Library Used for Books or Study, (3) Help from Librarians, (4) Time, Frequency and Use of Library, (5) Workshop Attendance and Evaluation, (6) Progress in Independent Study Program and (7) General Comments on Program.
