Supplementing the Hillegas Scale

by M. R. Trabue - 1917

During the spring session of last year (1916), some of the advanced students in the department of educational administration at Teachers College were engaged in an educational survey of Nassau County, Long Island. In the course of this survey the educational achievements of public school pupils were measured by means of standard educational scales and tests. The measurements of the quality of English compositions written in Nassau County suggested very strongly the need for two supplements to the Hillegas Scale.1 In the first place, there seemed to be a distinct need for a supplementary scale composed of compositions of the same general type as those written by Nassau County pupils, and, in the second place, it appeared desirable to set up some tentative standards indicating the quality of English compositions to be expected from the pupils of any given school grade. The discussion which follows is a report of certain efforts to supply these two supplements to the Hillegas Scale.
