    Background: A ONE-WEEK CONFERENCE ON EDUCATION AND APTITUDE TESTING IN THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES OPENED IN LAGOS ON FRIDAY (7 APRIL). THE CONFERENCE, ORGANISED BY THE WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL, ENDS ON APRIL 13.

    IT WAS OFFICIALLY OPENED BY MR. A. J. CRONJE, REGISTRAR OF THE WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL. DELEGATES CAME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

    THE CONFERENCE IS SUPPORTED BY A CONTRACT BETWEEN THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH AND USAID, WASHINGTON. THE INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION WITH EXPERIENCE OF DEVELOPMENT TESTS FOR USE IN WEST AFRICA GOING BACK TO 1961.

    THE MEETING IS DESIGNED SO THAT PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES CAN POOL KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE AND SO THAT INDIVIDUAL SPECIALISTS CAN GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.

    AMONG THE COUNTRIES REPRESENTED ARE THE U. S. A., THAILAND, KOREA, NIGERIA AND BRAZIL. THE CONFERENCE IS BEING RUN AS A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS RATHER THAN AS A FORMAL PROFESSIONAL MEETING.

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS WILL PROCEED THROUGH GROUP DISCUSSIONS, BASED ON THE STUDY PLAN FOR A SERIES OF MEETINGS TO BE HELD OUTSIDE WEST AFRICA.
