In 1951 the Department of Educational Administration and Supervision of the University of Tennessee in cooperation with the Southern States Cooperative Program in Educational Administration (succeeded in 1956 by the Associated Programs in Educational Administration) initiated a research project designed to improve the preparation program of the Department and to provide a basis for improving the selection of students.
