Recently efforts have been made to set up a broader guidance program at Prairie View A. and M. College. It includes the administration of various tests to incoming freshman students as a means of determining ability at the college level of these students, so as to point out the areas where guidance is most needed. The tests used for this purpose are the American Council on Education Psychological Examination (1948 Edition), and the Purdue English Placement List. With this underlying purpose in mind, the investigator set up a threefold purpose for this study, which is: (1) to determine the extent to which the American Council on Education Psychological Examination (1948 Edition) is successful in predicting a student's success in Prairie View A. and M. College; (2) to determine the extent to which the classification of the high school from which the student graduates influences his success in college; and (3) to determine the extent to which one and one-half semester of college work influences scores made by students on the American Council on Education Psychological Examination.
