Any school which is making an honest effort to adjust its program to the assured and probable future needs of its students will want to know as much as possible about the activities those youths are going to have to face. One way of going about this is to try to find out these things for the group which has already left school. This is done on the assumption that the youth now in school will probably lead lives quite similar to those of the youth who have recently left the school.

The educational value of the knowledge, skills, ideals, and powers that are learned in the class rooms is determined in the final analysis, by how well students can use them in worthwhile life situations. To determine the value of skills and knowledge taught in the high school, surveys of graduates must be made in order to determine the practicability of the content material learned there.
