Credit by Examination Comes of Age: Implications of AP and CLEP for Colleges, Schools, and Students. Report of the Colloguium on Credit by Examination (University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, March 7-9, 1979).
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
This book is based on a national invitational colloquium that took place in March, 1979, at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. The colloquium was sponsored by the College Board in cooperation with the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) of the Big Ten Universities and the University of Chicago. It afforded an opportunity for participants to expand their understanding of credit by examination at a critical stage in its evolution, and to consider the ends achieved and the difficulties created by the use of examinations of the Advanced Placement Program (APP) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) as a way towards college credit. The contents of the book represent papers that were commissioned on various aspects of credit by examination to stimulate discussion at the colloquium. The names of those engaged in the discussion are included. (Author/GSK)
