Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer for each of the questions from 46 to 55.
We find that bright children are rarely held back by mixed-ability teaching. On the contrary, both
their knowledge and experience are enriched. We feel that there are many disadvantages in streaming
pupils. It does not take into account the fact that children develop at different rates. It can have a bad effect
on both the bright and the not-so-bright child. After all, it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of
the top grade!
Besides, it is rather unreal to grade people just according to their intellectual ability. This is only one
aspect of their total personality. We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our pupils to the full, not
just their academic ability. We also value personal qualities and social skills, and we find that mixed-ability
teaching contributes to all these aspects of learning.
In our classrooms, we work in various ways. The pupils often work in groups; this gives them the
opportunity to learn to co-operate, to share, and to develop leadership skills. They also learn how to cope
with personal problems as well as learning how to think, to make decisions, to analyze and evaluate, and to
communicate effectively. The pupils learn from each other as well as from the teachers.
Sometimes the pupils work in pairs; sometimes they work on individual tasks and assignments, and
they can do this at their own speed. They also have some formal class teaching when this is appropriate. We
encourage our pupils to use the library, and we teach them the skills they need in order to do this
effectively. An advanced pupil can do advanced work; it does not matter what age the child is. We expect
our pupils to do their best, not their least, and we give them every encouragement to attain this goal.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer for each of the questions from 56 to 65.
Experiments have shown that in selecting personnel for a job, interviewing is at best a hindrance,
and may even cause harm. These studies have disclosed that the judgments of interviewers differ markedly
and bear little or no relationship to the adequacy of the job applicants. Of the many reasons why this should
be the case, three in particular stand out.
The first reason is related to an error of judgment known as the halo effect. If a person has one
noticeable good trait, their other characteristics will be judged as better than they really are. Thus, an
individual who dresses smartly and show self-confidence is likely to be judged capable of doing a job well
regardless of his or her real ability.
Interviewers are also prejudiced by an effect called the primary effect. This error occurs when
interpretation of later information is distorted by earlier connected information. Hence, in an interview
situation, the interviewer spends most of the interview trying to confirm the impression given by the
candidate in the first few moments. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that such an impression is
unrelated to the aptitude of the applicant. The phenomenon known as the contrast effect also skews the judgment of interviewers. A suitable
candidate may be underestimated because he or she contrasts with a previous one who appears
exceptionally intelligent. Likewise, an average candidate who is preceded by one who gives a weak
showing may be judged as more suitable than he or she really is.
Since interviews as a form of personnel selection have been shown to be inadequate, other selection
procedures have been devised which more accurately predict candidate suitability. Of the various tests
devised, the predictor which appears to do this most successfully is cognitive ability as measured by a
variety of verbal and spatial tests.

A. judgments of interviewers concerning job applicants
