The article presents information on the functions of science committees in Wisconsin. Each member of the science committees in Wisconsin is given an opportunity to express his opinion on all of the phases of the problem. Each member constructs his own test before any discussions are held. Each test represents the opinion of that member. When all of the tests have been presented and defended, the committee begins to see the necessity of positive decision to the form or forms of tests which may be used. At their first meeting the committee agrees upon the possible forms of tests that may be used. The second meeting is devoted to checking the curricular validity of the different questions, and the rearrangement of the questions forms of the tests. The most undesirable forms are eliminated and new questions are added. After these preliminary trials have been given, the revised tests are sent to the chairman and placed in form for trial use with about 300 students.
