Sleeman acting superintendent Bennington South supervisory Union from his first Day at school your youngster s Progress will be noted in his school record. This collection of reports and comments by teachers Counselor and school officials will offer As time passes a lengthening profile of your songs or daughter s interests abilities and personality. The school record is by no Means the Only resource upon which you and your youngster May draw to help decide what he does after graduation from High school. But his record through the grades and High school is perhaps the Best measure you will have of his potential for future education and training. A a of our schools Are keeping better records today than they Ever have. And in More and More communities the schools Are providing guidance personnel who possess skill in interpreting the meaning of each record to the individual student. Your Community is one of the fortunate ones where High schools Are staffed with Counselor who have time to give personal attention to each student. It even has Well trained guidance personnel covering the elementary schools. Your youngster will get personal attention from a trained member of the guidance staff in the eighth Grade. This is important. Ninth Grade study programs need to be planned with an Eye to the requirements for Entrance into College technical institutes or whatever school you and your youngster feel that he will attend after High school. Y our school Counselor will be wholly Frank with parents who in their turn should be honest with him and themselves. If a child a school record does not measure up to expectations there May be several possible explanations. One is that the youngster May not have Strong abilities or that parents expect too much of their youngster. Unrealistic parental demands Are usually evident to a child and often add to his difficulties. Or sometimes parents May ask too Little of a child perhaps because they fail to understand or appreciate the full extent of his talents. The record May indicate that the student has a first rate mind but is doing poor work in school. In cases such As these and most others the task of Counselor and Parent alike is to explore frankly the possible reasons for the students poor performance. Y our youngsters school record will cover three major areas of activity. One will be his Day to Day performance in the classroom. Another will reflect his interest and ability in extracurricular affairs such As dramatics student government music and athletics. A third and significant part of the record will be your youngsters scores on Standard tests Given to Many other Young people of the same age across the country. A of c an you depend on the results of these tests their True value is at present a matter of some controversy among educators. All agree however that the Standard tests Are helpful if they Are properly interpreted and Are not the sole basis for judgment of your youngsters potential. Weighed in the Light of the total school record the results of Standard tests can help you and your youngster reach intelligent decisions about his future. Perhaps the most talked about Standard test is the . Or intelligence quotient examination. The purpose of the . Test is to measure intelligence apart from the degree of education or acquired learning. Recent research shows however that intensive education May bring marked increases in .

Thus although schools do use this test As a guide to determining whether youngsters Are working to the Best of their abilities most will not discuss actual scores for fear they will be used to Label children unfairly. Testing in school usually starts Early often with a Reading Readl Ness examination in the first Grade. Through Grade school and High schoo1 the testing continues providing an Ever clearer pattern of results As the time of decision approaches. A of there Are two examinations of special importance for High school students the Scholastic aptitude test sat and the preliminary Scholastic aptitude test past. Both Are administered by the College Entrance examination Board and Are designed to measure verbal and mathematical skills. If your child is considering College he should plan to take the is at in Grade la. His Counselor May also advise that he take the sat for practice that same year. Usually he will also have to take the sat in Grade 12, for generally it is this test which colleges use in their admissions procedures. Another set of College admissions tests also widely available is administered by the american College testing program. Many colleges in the Midwest prefer to use the results of these tests in selecting candidates for admission. A score of 60 or higher in both the verbal and math sections of the past test indicates a potential for Success in severe Scholastic Competition while 35 or less indicates that the youngster May have difficulty in such Competition. If the average prevails the comparable sat scores Are 660 and 410 in the verbal areas. About 450 colleges and universities Are affiliated with the College Entrance examination Board and take these test scores into account in selecting students for admission. The applications for the tests Are available in All High schools that regularly Send youngsters on to College. A of in addition to tests of academic aptitude and ability schools and guidance agencies administer a wide Range of examinations to probe attitudes motivation and vocational preference. Many of these May help you and your son or daughter reach sound judgments but it is Well to Bear in mind that by being unambitious and Lazy your child can betray Tiv highest expectations of future brilliance. Or by sincere Effort he might reach a degree of Success greater than Early test scores might indicate. The education of your child need not end with High school even though he does not desire to go on to College. Several choices Are open to Young people today not Only in the types of education available after High school but also in a wide Range of Job opportunities for those of special skills. Aptitude testing and the youngsters total school record can Point the Way Tother special Fields where his talents will be needed. Any one of growing number of Trade schools technical institutes and Junior colleges May offer just the sort of study and training that he will want in order to develop those skills.
