This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This report is a discussion of many of the programs from the SMSG Computer Program Library as it existed in June, 1972. Major programs included involve item analysis, attitude item analysis, scale scoring, correlation and t-test, stepwise regression, homogeneity of regression, and factor analysis. Besides a discussion of each, information on parameter set-up along with sample input and sample output is given. Actual line-by-line program listings are not included. However, a concluding analysis paper explains the use of the program library and gives the call name and function for each available program. For related documents, see ED 044 277 - ED 044 283, ED 044 310, ED 045 447, and SE 016 669 - SE 016 691. (LS)
