The purpose of this thesis is to determine, as far as possible, the extant to which the language-factor tests included in present psychological examinations administered to freshmen at the Collage of the Pacific are reliable as factors contributing to an estimate of the capacities of the individuals examined.

This necessitates a study of both the gross and language-factor tests scores

In making the study, the results of examinations given in three years,—1925, 1926, and 1928, —were utilized. The total number of cases included in these years was 560, a sufficient number to warrant the placing of considerable reliance upon the findings resulting from the study.
