The program is discussed in relation to teacher identification of students, a yearly visit by students to the laboratory, and laboratory staff visits to cooperating high schools.

Methodology for appraising capabilities of students is described in four abstracts on analysis of personal documents, seven abstracts on actuarial methods of prediction, and two abstracts on oral problem solving. Descriptions of students are given in 14 abstracts on characteristics, two abstracts on grouping preferences, and four abstracts on curricular preferences.
