the important aims of the Exami-
nation and Evaluation Division.
Dr. Edward Furst, Chief of this
department and assistant profes-
sor of Psychology, explained that
all freshmen entrance examina-
tions are conducted by his division.
Each freshman is given a gen-
eral psychological exam, a coop-
erative reading exam, and an Eng-
lish proficiency test.
English Essay Exam
Students in the College of Lit-
erature, Science and the Arts are
required to take an English essay
exam along with the others, while
those enrolled in the College of
Engineering take mathematics and
chemistry placement tests to sup-
plement their records.
Cards are sent to freshmen Eng-
lish instructors with the students'
scores on the Belevant exams. This
helps the instructor decide wheth-
er the student should go into
English 2 or able to take a higherj
level course.
\Another important function of
the Evaluation and Examinations
Division is "to help interested fac-
ulty members improve their own
exams and to conduct experiments
on various teaching methods,"
Prof. Furst remarked.
Tests High School Students
The Division also tests high
school students eligible for the
Regents-Alumni Scholarship and
serves as the local administrative
center for several nation-wide test-
ing programs.
In the fields of dentistry, engi-
neering, journalism, law, liberal
arts, medicine, pharmacy, product
design and nursing, Prof. Furst
continued, much recent research
has been carried out.
"In nursing, for example, it has
been found that students consis-
tently show a strong interest in
social services and scientific ac-
tivities and a low interest in cleri-
cal and computational work."

Besides Prof. Furst, staff mem-
bers working on these projects in-
clude Benno G. Fricke, Assistant
Chief of the Division, a senior
clerk, a secretary and three part-
time clerical assistants.
Another division of the Bureau
frequently used by students in
conjunction with the tests, is the
Counseling Service. Mrs. Barbara
Nechmann, psychologist in the de-
partment, reported that students
choosing a major subject or a pro-
fession, or those with a problem in
social adjsutment "come here for

causing the difficulty if students
are having trouble with their sub-
jects," she said. "Often it is a
case of lack of ability in a special
