This thesis project examines statistical data for incoming Brockport State Teachers College students from 1949-1957, including college entrance exam scores as well as other required testing. The researcher completed this project in an effort to organize and understand trends regarding incoming students and their academic performance during the first year of study. The study assists and advises admissions and curricula committees regarding the student population. It also examines the results of both the American Council on Education Psychological Examination and the Cooperative English Examination (Part 1, Reading Comprehension). The study group’s statistical information included any Brockport freshmen, 1949-1957, who possessed a high school average, ACE, SCAT, and other such college testing measurements. The project defines each measurement and includes an extensive appendices and table section to illustrate the study’s findings.
