The purpose of this study was to determine the value of the Read General Science Test and the Cooperative Algebra Test for predicting success in high school physics. Success in high school physics was determined by the score obtained on the Cooperative Physics Teat. An additional observation was made on the results of the students taking advanced standing physics to determine if a special pattern of abilities existed for these students. The Read General Science Test and the Cooperative Algebra Test were administered to 104 physics students at Brookline High School during September, 1956. In May, 1957, the Cooperative Physics Test was administered to the same group. The scores on the Read General Science Test and the scores on the Cooperative Algebra Test were correlated with the scores on the Cooperative Physics Test. In addition, the scores obtained on the physics items of the Read General Science Teat were correlated with the scores obtained on the Cooperative Physics Test [TRUNCATED]
