Purpose — This study was devised to determine the relation between the intelligence rating end teachers marks of freshmen at Prairie View University, and the value of the American Council psychological Examination In predicting a student*a academic success in his subject major fields. The purpose in making this analysis is to see if the result of the American Council Psychological Examination may not be of greater guidance value than It la at present, especially as pertaining to the conditions existing at Prairie View University.

Need — The need of such a study as this one is evident in view of the fact that the American Council Psychological Examination is used quite extensively in colleges and universities, and that there have been but relatively few studies carried out to determine the value of the test as a guide In predicting academic success in certain college departments.
