In recent years the teaching profession has gained a position of unceasing public prominence which has brought with it increasing demands of professional competence. While the competencies demanded are many in number and varied in nature, the one which. is almost always asked for is that of the ability of the teacher to handle intellectual material. One measure of this ability is the degree of success which the teacher attained in his own academic endeavors while a student in a college or university.

The Problem:

This study compared the intellectual ability of liberal arts teacher credential candidates with liberal arts students who did not plan on a career in teaching. The problem was to determine the difference in academic ability and achievement between credential candidates and other liberal arts students who were granted the bachelor's degree on June 11, 1961, by the University of the Pacific.
