A Survey of Testing Practices Among Post-Secondary Institutions in Washington State--1978.
This survey, administered in March 1978, gathered data about current testing practices among post-secondary educational institutions in the state of Washington. The data concern the admission and placement of students who have had little or no post-secondary education. Data are presented in tables under the following headings: (1) Testing--Requirement for Admission; (2) Testing--Course Placement--Cutoff Scores; (3) Testing--Course Scheduling--Advising Only; (4) Test Utilized; and (5) Testing--Program Entrance--Minimum Standards. A few general conclusions are made. Most colleges include testing as a secondary requirement of the admission process. Testing for couse placement is more common in community than four-year colleges; standardized tests of reading and English composition are often used. The use of locally-developed tests has increased, and community programs in colleges with vocational programs in health services have established minimum standards for admission to the program.
