The College Entrance Examinations Board has voted to allow schools and colleges to divulge the results of their tests to high school students. The new ruling, which will take effect in December 1958, breaks a long tradition of secrecy dating back to 1916.
A subcommittee to be appointed by the CEEB will advise colleges and schools, which are to have "complete discretion" in releasing scores.
In a speech before the Board, Judson T. Shaplin '42, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Education, said students should have "a basis of known standards" for all college requirements. Students will now be able to gauge more accurately their chances of admission in terms of at least one of these standards, the CEEB tests.
