College News and Departmental Notes: Secondary Education
by Departmental notes - 1921
Representatives of the department of secondary education are cooperating with the advisory committee of the American Classical League and the faculty of the Boys' High School of Brooklyn to ascertain what kinds and amounts of intelligence are essential to the learning of Latin as taught. A battery of tests has been given under the direction of Mr. W. S. Allen to four hundred and thirty freshmen who have elected Latin; and other tests of intelligence and tests of Latin will be administered from time to time as the class progresses. Every effort will be made to keep the group as nearly intact as possible during the period of the study. Tests are also being given at the Horace Mann Schools and The Lincoln School to determine the effect of the study of Latin upon the passive vocabulary.
