    • An Evaluation of the Validity of English Placement Tests at Imam Abdurrahman Bin Faisal University: A Critical Analysis

      Perez, Heidi; Minett, Amy Jo; Al Qahtani, Amal Hussain (2024-05-07)
      This study examines the validity and reliability of English placement exams at Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University and their ability to forecast academic success in English foundation courses. Using a quantitative correlational approach, the research analyzed data from 300 students to assess the relationship between placement test scores and subsequent course grades. Findings indicate that test scores moderately predict course performance, explaining about 38.4% and 36.2% of the variance in grades for two core courses. However, significant variability in test effectiveness across different academic disciplines suggests that the exams may not consistently capture diverse academic needs and language proficiencies. The study recommends targeted refinements in the exam structure and scoring to enhance fairness and accuracy in student placements, addressing specific disparities found across disciplines. These adjustments are crucial for better aligning placement procedures with the educational demands and language competencies at the university.

      On June 25, 1914, fifteen-year-old Annah Mildred Lougee was living at 2 Fairfield Street in Salem with her parents, Arthur and Annah, and her siblings, Norman and Doris, when the Great Salem Fire erupted. The Lougee family owned the J. L. Lougee furniture store at 281 Essex Street, where they sought refuge as the inferno approached their home. Mildred's grandparents resided nearby at 31 Summer Street. In a detailed account, Mildred documented her family's ordeal, describing the fire’s progression from Boston Street toward their home on Fairfield Street. She also mentioned their neighbors, the Pinnock family, who lived at 4 Fairfield Street. Ultimately, the fire consumed all the homes on Fairfield Street.
