After completing forty five semester hours of work, students at San Diego State College may apply for admission to the Secondary teacher education program. If accepted, they may enter this program after completion of at least sixty semester hours of work. These candidates are screened on the basis of grade point average, college aptitude score as measured by the American Council on Education Psychological Examination for College Freshmen, and an interview rating which is determined by interviews with four members of the faculty--three from the education department, and one from the applicant's major department. The applicants must also pass a general culture test consisting of six sections: (a) current social problems, (b) history and social studies, (c) literature, (d) science, (e) fine arts, and (f) mathematics. They must pass tests of fundamental skills. These tests include reading, spelling, arithmetic, and handwriting. There are also other requirements, such as tests of physical fitness and speech, which have not been considered in the present study. A complete copy of the admission requirements at the time this study was done has been placed in the appendix.
