The measurement of intelligence; an explanation of and a complete guide for the use of the Stanford revision and extension of the Binet-Simon intelligence scale by Lewis M Terman( Book )

52 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The constant and growing use of the Binet-Simon intelligence scale in public schools, institutions for defectives, reform schools, juvenile courts, and police courts is sufficient evidence of the intrinsic worth of the method. It is generally recognized, however, that the serviceableness of the scale has hitherto been seriously limited, both by the lack of a sufficiently detailed guide and by a number of recognized imperfections in the scale itself. The Stanford revision and extension has been worked out for the purpose of correcting as many as possible of these imperfections, and it is here presented with a rather minute description of the method as a whole and of the individual tests. The aim has been to present the explanations and instructions so clearly and in such an untechnical form as to make the book of use, not only to the psychologist, but also to the rank and file of teachers, physicians, and social workers. More particularly, it is designed as a text for use in normal schools, colleges, and teachers' reading-circles. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

Intelligence. Cognitive Abilities
Sex and personality; studies in masculinity and femininity by Lewis M Terman( Book )

27 editions published between 1936 and 2013 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sex differences in personality and temperament are matters of universal human interest. They are rapidly coming to be recognized as one of the central problems in anthropology, sociology, and psychology. It is well that they should be so recognized; for sex differences are more than a perennial stimulus to idle speculation, wit, and literary art. Mass theories in regard to them are one of the most potent of all the forces that operate in the shaping of human societies. Unfortunately, investigations of masculinity and femininity have been retarded by lack of definiteness with respect to what these terms should connote. Gross departures from even a vaguely denned norm have of course long been recognized, but in the absence of quantitative methods the less extreme deviations are overlooked or misunderstood. The purpose of the investigations here reported has been the accomplishment in the field of masculinity-femininity of something similar to Binet's early achievement in the field of intelligence--a quantification of procedures and of concepts. No one can better realize than the authors how imperfectly they have succeeded in their pioneer attempt. The problem of temperament is no less complex than the problem of abilities. The concepts of masculinity and femininity are even more vague than the nineteenth century concepts of intelligence. Clarity and exactness are seldom attained by a single effort. Indeed, the investigations to be reported have been shaped by the conviction that only the simplest and roughest kind of quantification is at present possible, and that any attempt at exact measurement of the traits in question would, in the present state of psychometric development, be fatuous and unprofitable. The experiment will have justified itself if in some degree it opens the way to more precise measurements and methods"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)

The intelligence of school children : how children differ in ability, the use of mental tests in school grading and the proper education of exceptional children by Lewis M Terman( Book )

38 editions published between 1919 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been written for the rank and file of teachers, school supervisors, and normal-school students. Its purpose is to illustrate the large individual differences in original endowment which exist among school children and to show the practical bearing of these differences upon the everyday problems of classroom management and school administration. It does not treat, except incidentally, the psychological principles underlying intelligence tests. Some of these problems the writer has touched upon elsewhere. The technique of giving the tests of the revised Binet scale and the general significance of mental tests for education have been set forth in some detail in another volume of this series, The Measurement of Intelligence, which should be read in connection with the present volume. The writer's present aim is the more practical one of showing how the results of mental tests may be put to everyday use in the grade classification and in the educational guidance of school children"--Preface.

The hygiene of the school child by Lewis M Terman( Book )

39 editions published between 1913 and 2012 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work has been prepared as a textbook in school hygiene for the use of normal schools, colleges, and teachers' reading circles. It has been shaped by the conviction that the primary concern of such a text should be the child itself--the hygiene of physical and mental growth, rather than the details of school architecture and school equipment. New problems, new methods, and new centers of interest have appeared since the first edition of this book. Mental hygiene has made rapid strides, and is in a fair way of becoming a science. A serious attempt has been made to reflect these changes and progress in this revision. The book has been largely rewritten and made over. Facts and figures have been revised and new data added to bring the text up to the present state of our knowledge. The bibliographies are new, and, while selective rather than exhaustive, they contain a considerable sampling of the latest, most authentic, and most promising work. The materials in the chapters on "The Headaches of School Children," and "The Nervous Child," did net appear in the original edition. New chapters have been included on "Mortality and Morbidity," "The Health of the Teacher," "Hygiene of the Schoolroom," and "The Teaching of Physiology and Hygiene." Two chapters have been dropped--one on "The Significance of Physiological Age," another on "The Harmful Effects of School Life"; the first because it is of doubtful pedagogical importance, and the second because its topics now are treated in connection with other chapters. In line with other texts in the series, there has been added, at the close of each chapter, a collection of teaching helps in the form of topics for report and discussion, and exercises and problems for review, drill, and study.

Aptitude testing by Clark Leonard Hull( Book )

8 editions published in 1928 in English and Undetermined and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The practice of psychological testing has advanced with great rapidity within recent years. The early crude methods are being replaced by scientific procedures, and the early naive views in regard to the test-aptitude relation and the possibilities of tests are giving way before more adequate theories and more sober expectations. In a word, aptitude testing, like medicine and engineering, is ceasing to be a job for amateurs and is becoming the work of technically trained professionals. It has been the purpose of the author to include within a convenient space two of the essentials of the training for aptitude work: (1) an account of the fundamental principles of aptitude testing and (2) an intelligible description of the most effective and the most economical methods of constructing batteries of aptitude tests. Specifically the book is designed as a text for university and college classes in aptitude testing and as a general handbook for those engaged in aptitude work of all kinds, whether in the form of vocational guidance, general personnel work, or employment selection"--Preface.

The gifted child grows up : twenty-five years' follow-up of a superior group by Lewis M Terman( Book )

The gifted group at mid-life : thirty-five years' follow-up of the superior child by Lewis M Terman( Book )

22 editions published between 1959 and 1967 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 35 years' followup of the Terman investigation on the gifted child is presented. In order to describe the gifted group of mid-life, a general information blank was mailed in 1950 (1,437 subjects) and in 1955 (1,424 subjects). The field study, completed in 1952, included personal interviews, the Concept Mastery Test, supplementary questionnaires of subject and spouse, and testing of offspring. Results for 97.5% of the subjects include the following: intelligence increased significantly from 1939 to 1952 (p .001); 85% of the group went to college and nearly 70% graduated; two-thirds of the men and three-fifths of the women did graduate work; on the Minnesota Occupational Scale, all subjects were in the first five of the seven groups and 86% were in the first two (professional and executive); and one-half of the women were housewives but many contributed to community and civic activities. The marriage rate and personal adjustment were average for the population. Other results are given for mortality, health, avocational interests, political and social attitudes, marriage, divorce, income, and offspring. Sixty-one tables are provided. The appendixes include the forms used and a 45-item bibliography. (Sn)

The Stanford revision and extension of the Binet-Simon scale for measuring intelligence by Lewis M Terman( Book )

11 editions published between 1917 and 2016 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The labors of Professor Terman and his co-workers at Stanford University in the critical examination and improvement of the Binet-Simon Scale for Measuring Intelligence are so well and so favorably known by psychologists and by the many users of the method that no words of editorial introduction are needed to call attention to the importance of the present monograph. The results of these labors are embodied in the Stanford Revision of the Binet-Simon Scale. A general guide for the application of this Revision has been published elsewhere. In the present monograph, however, the reader is taken 'behind the scenes,' is shown the precise methods by which the Revision was made, the actual data on which it was based. There is introduced also an instructive discussion of a number of very salient questions: What is the nature of intelligence? How is intelligence distributed? What sex differences exist in intelligence? What is the relation between intelligence and social status? Between intelligence and school success? Is the intelligence quotient a valid measure? How shall the validity of any single test in an intelligence scale be determined? What principles should govern the assembling of tests into a system, or scale? These questions have more than a merely technical interest: they bear in many ways upon practical problems of school instruction and administration. The monograph should do much to stimulate and to clarify thinking, both in psychological and in pedagogical circles"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
Health work in the schools by Ernest Bryant Hoag( Book )

11 editions published in 1914 in English and Undetermined and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume deals with the problems involved in health supervision, health examination, and hygiene teaching, and it is hoped that it will contribute materially to the standardization of health supervision and to the broadening of its scope. Every one must realize that a great amount of what goes by the name of "medical inspection of schools" can be called health work only by courtesy. All along the line, among superintendents, teachers, school nurses, school boards, and even school doctors, education is needed which will lend a broader vision to the purpose and possibilities of genuine health supervision. Special emphasis has been given by the authors to the part played by the teacher in school health work. The book has been planned primarily for the use of the grade teacher, and with her needs especially in view, though it is hoped that it may also serve as a handbook for the guidance of superintendents, school nurses, and boards of education"--Introduction.
