This experimental study is designed to obtain objective data which may be useful in facilitating improved academic counseling of high school seniors. It is concerned with the average of some standard objective test scores obtained by testing a selected sample of high school seniors who were tested in a regular classroom situation; and with the average academic grades earned by the same sample of students during their first semester and their first year in college. The experiment will seek to establish or refuse statistical significance between the average scores obtained by the objective tests and the prade-point averages earned during the two time-periods established.

The purpose of the study is: (1) analyse and evaluate selected objective tests as a predictor of the success or failure of college students: (2) interpret the use that the tests might serve to facilitate academic counseling.
