Movement to the Multistate Bar Examination -- What Next? The Demand for Post-Examination Performance Criteria.
Goolsby, Thomas M., Jr.
During the middle 1960s, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners pioneered the inclusion of multiple-choice questions on the bar exam. This proved such a success that, in 1969, the National Conference of Bar Examiners formed a national committee to develop a program for a "national" objective bar examination. This exam is called the Multistate Bar Examination and was administered in a number of States early in 1972. The need for research to determine post-examination performance criteria is currently being ignored, but it is essential in establishing this bar exam as an effective licensing procedure. It is recommended that the National Conference of Bar Examiners establish another committee to specify procedures to answer questions of future performance. Otherwise, examinations and selection procedures are in jeopardy. (KM)
