It was found that taking a psychology course in high school did not improve the performance of college students in an introductory psychology class on a modified version of Vaughan's (1977) misconceptions test. However, college experience did lead to a significant, but not large, improvement. A comparison of our results with those from previous studies, along with an analysis of specific test items, indicated that perhaps the test itself is misconceived.
