Abstract

The selection of students for the veterinary college at Iowa State College has become a real problem. Every year several times the enrollment capacity applies for entrance, and from this large group the few who are to be allowed admission must be carefully selected. In selecting these students, chief reliance has been placed on past scholastic records, both high school and pre-professional training in college, and upon various measures of scholastic aptitude. At present, a veterinary aptitude test is being developed by W. A. Owens of the Department of Psychology and L. C. Payne, School of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State College. This test will aid materially in the solution of the problem. In an attempt to contribute some further aid in the selection of professional students, a study of the interests of veterinarians was undertaken. This study consists of the standardization of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank for Men on a group of veterinarians plus additional studies in the correlates of an interest score determined by this new scale.
