The primary question which this study endeavors to answer is: How are achievement, intelligence and personality tests results used in the elementary schools of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod?

This study will investigate only the use of standardized tests. As each school and each teacher would use different types of teacher-made tests for different purposes, it was felt that no general conclusions could be reached in the use of that type of instrument were included in this study. Limiting the study to standardized tests provides for a common basis on which to evaluate all schools. Another reason for selecting standardized tests is that the publishers of such instruments generally outline the uses for which the test is to be employed. By utilizing the most commonly suggested uses of these tests, standards can be set up. The success of a testing program can then be measured against this standard.
