Abstract : The document reports on statistical work not requiring the class grades of students for tests given in July 1948. Appreciable relationships were sought between hours or lessons of refresher work and mathematics achievement test scores. Comparisons of the postgraduate school results were made with those for college entrance examination board candidates for five tests taken by both groups. One verbal test given to a Naval Academy entering class was compared for average score against the postgraduate group. Comparison was made of the postgraduate school group with the 1947 freshman class at the Coast Guard Academy. Also, the postgraduate group was compared on the same tests, and on one other test, to a group of freshman liberal arts students at a large Eastern university. (Author)
