White Says Language Exams
Ha ve Lowered Requirements

Now that graduatit n time is (1111' .v-
ing near. one of the topics of dis-
cussion 011 the campus is the lan-
guage proficiency examination. In
an effort to secure information on
the subject. several professors and
students were interviewed.

The correct title for the examina-
tion is “Basic Achievement in For-
eign Language." The test. which is
set up on a national basis and grad—
ed on a national scale. is used to
help fulfill general requirements in
the College of Arts and Sciences.

Dean M. M. White of the College
of Arts and Sciences, stated that
the purpose of the test is “an at-
tempt to excuse those students who
did as well as the national norm
from taking two years of foreign

that the adoption of thc present
system actually lowered the lan-
guage requirements in the College
of Arts and Scrences. Prior to its
mum in September 1945. stu-
dents who presented no language
credits on entering college were re-


compltte 4 quarters of one
uaLe and two of another.
Hike 5 quarters of one language.

Under the present system. a stu-
dent may take the test any time
after beginning study of a language,
ll he gets the consent of his in-
structor However. it is more desir—
able that the student study a lan-
Lu Lt for one yeai and take the test
duiinc oi at the end of the second
semester of work. In the event he
fail- the test the first time he takes
it. the student should continue
studying the language until he does
pass it or has completed two years
of lanuuage study. In either case,
his language requirements will have
been fulfilled.

appraximately 33 per cent of the
students who have had one year of
language fail to pass the test the
first time they take it. He pointed
out the fact that the student must
p.1ss the test a semester before he
complaes his requirements for grad—

complete two years of study of the

24-26. 1952." said Dr. Jonah W. D.

He said the purpose of the con—

campus of the University scholars
and teachers to discuss foreign lan-
guages. ancient and modern. in all
of their bearings upon both interna-
tional and domestic affairs.

“For studying and solving prob-
lems of the present international

world. there could hardly be a more
sicnificant area than the field of
foreim languages. Therefore, I con-
sider the University of Kentucky
Forc1gn Language Conference one of
the most vital activities of the Uni-
vcrsity.“ Dr. Skiles said.

This conference. which was start-
ed in 1948 under the directorship of
Dr. Skiles. with the assistance of
Dr. A. E. Bigge. professor of Ger-
man. and Dr. Hobart. Ryland of the
Romance Language Department. has
