Richards, assistant to> the dean of the School of Liberal Arts at the Pennsylvania Slate College. S:udents tend to continue in the relative position* they reach in the ihst semester in college, Mr. Richards reported after 1 completing a study of records of some 1.500 recent graduates. The study was mad© to evaluate the predictive validity of Several testing methods. \The assumption that the fir<t semester is hardly indicative because of strange con- ditions of work and new surroundings is apparently without foundation. A fresh- man who just gets passing grades in his first semester in college has one chance In thirty-one of being graduated in the top half of the class whereas the student who averages in the highest brackets in the opening term at college has twenty chances to one of being graduated in the top half of the class/* said Mr. Richards.

INDEX FOR MID-TERM DETERMINED AS 2.04 The school index for mid-term-as deter- mined from the school marks was found to be 2 04, according to Selmer C. Larson, registrar. The index of the school is found by aver- aging up the total indices received by the students. The s.udents* indices are deter- mined by their marks, whereby A is equal to 4 quality points. H to 3, C to 2. and D to 1. Their total quality points divided by the number of credit hours they are carry- ing is the students' index. The average of the 214 men who received marks, as compared to the 224 women was 2.00 to the women's 2.os. This result seems to signify that the women are much more adept in their studies than the men. The non-fraternity men obtained an average index of 2.01 as compared to the two fraternities. Psi Phi and Tri Kappa, who obtained a combined average of 1.96. The non-sorority women's average index was 2.07 as compared to the four sorori- ties' average 2.07. In these statistics the A UlUUlt'll non-^oioi it> v»v»A*ivi fraternity men and the sororities rate higher in scholarship than the fraternities. The Tri Kappa fraternity rates a higher scholarship index than the other fraternity. Psi Phi, 2.04 as to 1ST, The Alpha Delta sorority rates the highest scholastically with 2.27 with Arethusa following with 2.15, then Ago and Clio, with 2.07 and 1.91 respectively. These statistics also show That the men and women in the honorary societies were well picked because they rank the highest in scholarship according to their indices. The Sheldon Forum society with 2.35 ranks the highest of all men and the Sigma Pi Rho ranks the highest of all women with •> —M These statistics for the mid-term were only figured out just to let the student body know exactly where they stood in the school marking system. The marks that they received for mid-term will have no bearing on their final mark but are given to the student for the purpose of showing how he rated in his course and giving him an opportunity to raise his scholastic standing.
