The Psychological Methods of Testing Intelligence, Volume 1
Warwick & York, 1914 - 160 pagina's
"In my judgment, intelligence testing is one of the most promising fields of applied psychology, using that term in the strictest sense. For this reason I wanted to make this survey of it accessible to wider circles of readers outside the psychological profession, especially to teachers of normal and of backward children, to school administrative authorities, to school physicians, to specialists in nervous and in children's diseases, and to those engaged in child welfare work. This special edition, accordingly, has been arranged. I have treated in it three main topics: single tests, the serial method (after Binet-Simon) and the methods of correlation and estimation. I hope that it will demonstrate to the workers in these circles the great importance and fruitfulness of the psychologist's methods and at the same time show them the difficulties and the gaps in the present status of this work, and that so plainly as to prevent overhasty attempts at practical application"--Preface.
