Faculty Defeats Motion to Award Ungraded Credit
Anticipatory credit in foreign languages was not passed by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in their Tuesday meeting, as was reported in the CRIMSON yesterday.
The motion calling for an ungraded course credit toward a degree for any student getting more than 700 on the College Entrance Examination Board Test or Harvard Placement Test was defeated by the faculty.
Instead, a committee has been formed to examine the whole problem of anticipatory credit. The consensus of faculty opinion felt that, if adopted, the move would set the College in a course toward a three year program, instead of the present four year program.
The defeated motion also called for an ungraded half course credit for students with a score between 650 and 699 on entrance examinations, or placement tests.
