The purpose of these tests, which have been given to Rochester Junior College students since 1949, is to give students information about their strength and weaknesses after two years of college. The tests are sent back to New Jersey where they are scored. They wilt be returned in about a month at that time. Each student receives a profile of his scores and may go to Miss Goette or Mr. Davis for an interpretation of his scores. The Rochester Junior College scores, when compared to those of other college sophomores, usually rate above the national average. These test scores will come in handy for students planning to transfer to senior colleges since they will be used there to help plan the college program for the last two years. There were three tests: English, which included reading comprehension, mechanics and1 effectiveness in expression; General NUMBER 11 Senate Committee Approves State Bill For Jr. College Aid The Education Committee of the Minnesota Senate Thursday approved a bill for state aid to junior colleges at the rate of $200 a student each year.
