The Experimental Certificate of Extended Education. A Report to the Schools Council by the National Foundation for Educational Research.
In an effort to meet the needs of a wider range of abilities in sixth-form students in England, their major and minor studies were combined with a program of general studies in curriculum working toward a Certificate of Extended Education (CEE). In summer 1974, the CEE experimental testing program was offered to students in the sixth form, specifically aiming at those who did not aspire to enter the university program. In attempting to define the potential target group of such a test, previous educational attainment, projected educational and employment intentions, opinions of the CEE program, and other examination programs being taken concurrently were recorded by each of the students in the survey group, along with their school type, age, and sex. The other purpose of the program, which was only partially accomplished, was to develop a criterion-referenced testing program. (BW)
