dc.description.abstract The purpose behind the writing of this paper was twofold. Not only did I write it to complete my requirements and graduate on the donors Program, but also I chose the topic of minimal competency testing because it is a concept that I will most likely come into contact with as a teacher in the next few years. I did not attempt to take a stand on the issue, but instead simply wrote as objectively as possible-in covering the topic. Since most school systems in Indiana have not yet been exposed to competency testing, my research was derived mostly from materials dealing with other states and articles written by those who have studied the concept in great detail. Having done the project, I feel as if I have a much greater understanding of the most controversial issue in education in the year 1979.I would also like to extend a hearty thanks to Dr. Paul Schumacher of the English Department at Ball State University for acting as my advisor for my thesis.
