This bulletin is one of a series of publications reporting the findings of investigations undertaken during 1936-37 under the research project in universities of the Office of Education. The project was financed under the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935, and conducted in accordance with administrative regulations of the Works Progress Administration. Study findings in addition to those reported in this bulletin will be made available in other Office of Education or institutional publications. This particular study is a report of investigations in different colleges or universities of the adjustment values of certain facts which are usually known about entering college students. Because of the large numbers of cases and the geographical distribution of the participating institutions, the findings can be interpreted with considerable assurance. Because of the extensiveness of the data they may also be of value to others in making further interpretations and comparisons. Guidance workers in secondary schools and colleges, and also college administrators and curriculum consultants who are concerned with improving the college program, will find in the report much suggestive material. (Contains 16 footnotes and 30 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
