The Trend of College Entrance Requirements, 1913-1922. Bulletin, 1924, No. 35
McKown, Harry Charles
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The literature of college entrance requirements is very voluminous. A part of it is scientific, a large part purely opinion, and nearly all of it is popular. It is rather startling that such an important field as the articulation of secondary and higher education has been made so little the subject of scientific study. Although it is recognized that all colleges are not equal in ideals, equipment, or product, nevertheless all colleges (accredited or recognized as such by the proper authorities) are colleges, and the interest of this study is in American colleges as a whole rather than in a few leading institutions. Stated briefly, the intent study is: To discover, trace, and interpret the trend of college entrance requirements for the decade 1913-1922. Contents include: (1) Introduction; (2) The Methods of Admission to College; (3) The Unit and Unit Requirements; (4) Academic Requirements for Entrance to College; (5) Personal Requirements for Entrance to College and Limitation of Enrollment; (6) The Flexibility of College Entrance Requirements; (7) A Comparison of the Colleges of Five Sections of the United States in the Various Phases of Entrance Requirements; and (8) Summary and Conclusion. (An Index is provided. The Colleges used in this study and selected bibliography are appended. Contains 84 tables. Individual chapters contain footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
