Washington Pre-College Test Norms and Admission's Index Data for University of Washington Freshmen Entering Autumn 1974.
de Wolf, Virginia A.
The present report is one in a series which profiles the University of Washington (UW) entering freshman class in terms of performance on the several tests making up the Washington Pre-College Testing Program's battery. As in earlier years, percentile charts for male and female entrants as well as for the total tested group, comprising 79 percent of all UW freshmen are included for the use of academic advisors and counselors. The group studied is the first one admitted to UW under new admissions standards requiring the use of an academic aptitude test in determining admissibility. The distribution of the Admission Index (AI) values used in making admissions decisions is reported and the impact of the test requirement on tested aptitude of entrants discussed. It is tentatively concluded that use of the AI and preferential admission of high aptitude students has led to a relative increase in the tested aptitude of the freshmen class. (Author/BJG)
