College Bound Seniors, 1974-75.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
Some one million college bound students, who were high school seniors during 1974-75 previously participated in the College Board's Admissions Testing Program (ATP), which included the Scholarship Aptitude Test (SAT), the Test of Standard Written English, the Student Descriptive Questionnaire, and the ATP Achievement Tests. These tests created a wide range of information about: (1) student socioeconomic characteristics, (2) academic performance in high school, (3) test scores, (4) student plans for advanced placement and advanced degrees, and (5) first choice intended field of study. The ATP summary report contributes information to understanding how various personal, social, and academic factors are involved as college-bound seniors become affiliated with individual college and systems of colleges. The report, prepared at a national, regional, and state level is useful in comparison with institutional data. (Author/KE)
