Abstract

This study is in progress at the present time and hence the report is concerned only with such aspects as have been completed. The Compass Survey Test in Arithmetic (Advanced Examination) and the Douglass Diagnostic Test in Elementary Algebra were given to 282 students pursuing freshman physics in five colleges. The disabilities indicated by these tests were classified and tabulated. In addition to the above, the daily, weekly, and other tests given by the instructors in these colleges to the students concerned were obtained and the disabilities indicated thereon were classified and tabulated. Each student also solved a selected list of physics problems. This list was so selected that a student solving all the problems would have to use a high percentage of all the mathematical skills required by a course in freshman physics as determined by previous studies.
