In the spring of 1953, a group of American colleges received grants from The Fund for the Advancement of Education (Ford Foundation) to make a study of their undergraduate teaching in liberal arts. As part of the study, many gave the Graduate Record Examination to the entire graduating class, believing that this would give an indication of their success in liberal arts training. Results of the examination in some cases led to curriculum changes. It is these last points which occasion the present remarks.
