The pupiU made remarkable progress during the year. A standard graduation of the entire school is rapidly adjusting itself. Standardized tests were given throughout the year to measure the progress of pupils here with those of other schools throughout the country. This testing program showed clearly that the pupils were retarded and often a mislit to the grade in which they were classed. Quite a number of children were missing their normal grade by ut least three yearn. The one-roomed rural school can, to u large extent, be held accountable for this situation, as it is very difficult und almost impossible to grade pupils with any degree of accuracy. This condition lias largely been remedied and by another year each pupil will likely be found in his or her respective grade according to age and ability. II will result in a very much better type I of instruction. It will give all children an equal opportunity which was not the case heretofor. Twenty pupils passed to the High school grade. These were given u new Stanford uchieve- i ineiit tesl as well as an examination i in subjects covered by the eighth year. These twenty pupils will comprise the j I freshman clus* in the High school this I I fall when the comiiiy term begins. NEWS CAMP 0&DBft0 GIVEN FOR CASTLE OAMBLOT _,___;.
