What is the effect of college training upon individuals? More specifically, do college students become more alike or more unlike in , respect to the achievement involved in a college course as a result of taking the course? That is the question which this study will investigate. The importance of this question to the educator is that it involves educational technique and philosophy. If it is found that our educational system decreases individual differences and has the effect therefore, of equalizing opportunity, our philosophy of universal education as an important factor in the achievement of democracy is valid. On the other hand, if our present educational ~system is found to increase individual differences, thereby making for inequality of opportunity, we are working in direct opposition to our philosophy of democracy.
