Resources and Standards of Colleges of Arts and Sciences. Report of a Committee Representing the Associations of Higher Educational Institutions. Bulletin, 1918, No. 30
Capen, Samuel Paul

An accurate and comprehensive study of college standards and resources has been needed for many years. Such a study should help college officers in one part of the country to evaluate credentials presented by students from institutions in other parts. It should assist parents to select wisely the institutions to which they shall send their children. Above all, it should enable college authorities to compare their own institutions with others and to strive for the most necessary improvements. In 1915, the Bureau of Education secured the cooperation of a committee representing higher educational associations for the purpose of making such a study. This document presents the results of the study. The results are less complete than could be desired, but nevertheless will accomplish, in a measure, the object in view.
