Abstract

The purpose of the study is to make a comparison between the achievements of the seniors of Hartford High School, Hartford, South Dakota, and the average achievement of the seniors of South Dakota by use of the Preliminary High-School Scholastic Contest as distributed by the University of South Dakota under the direction of Dr. Wm. H. Batson. The particular questions raised in the problem are:

l. What relationship exists between the marks received by individual high-school seniors in the Preliminary High-School Contest for the years 1948 and 1949 and their high-school mean marks in each of the four subject fields?

2. What relationship exists between the average scores received by these same high-school seniors on the Preliminary High-School Scholastic Contest and their mean mark in all four subject fields during their four years in high school?

3. Can the scores received by high-school seniors in the Preliminary High-School Scholastic Contest be used to evaluate the efficiency of the department and the reliability of the marking system used.
