College News and Departmental Notes: English
by Departmental notes - 1922
Professor Allan Abbott addressed the National Council of Teachers of English, which met in Chicago the latter part of November, on the subject of standard tests for English teachers. He is now working with a committee of the Council in the preparation of a series of tests of the various kinds of knowledge and skill needed by English teachers; and has the promise of cooperation in standardizing the tests from over a hundred instructors in methods courses, from supervisory officers and from heads of departments from all parts of the country. Certain types of questions are being experimented with in the methods courses at Teachers College this winter, the results of which will help to determine the type of tests that will finally be worked out.
