Intelligence : its nature and nurture by National Society for the Study of Education( Book )

26 editions published between 1939 and 1940 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second part of the 39th National Society for the Study of Education "yearbook" contains original studies and experiments on the nature and nurturing of intelligence. The purpose of the National Society is to promote the investigation and discussion of educational questions. To this end it holds an annual meeting and publishes a series of yearbooks. This yearbook will be discussed at the St. Louis meeting of the Society to be held February 24-26, 1940. The individual studies cover a range of material on intelligence, the many aspects of intellectual development in children, the various effects of early education on intelligence, and the factors of nature, nurture, and environmental factors in intelligence. There are a few offerings on development among children with mental retardation, slow learners, as well as development among children with mothers who could be considered "feeble-minded."
Manual of mental and physical tests; a book of directions compiled with special reference to the experimental study of school children in the laboratory or classroom by Guy Montrose Whipple( Book )

40 editions published between 1910 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hitherto the literature of mental and physical tests has been scattered in numerous journals; the results obtained by different investigators have too often not been compared; indeed, in many cases where the methods have been divergent, comparison has been impossible. In consequence, there have been no recognized standards of procedure and none of performance. Nevertheless, I believe that the time has now come for the taking of an account of stock, and for the systematization of the available materials. This conviction, which is the outgrowth of my own interest in the experimental study of mental capacities, an interest that has been with me during the past ten years, has been confirmed by many suggestions from colleagues and friends, who have pointed out that a manual of directions for mental tests would meet a real need, and might further the cause of investigation. I began, in March, 1906, to prepare a small handbook of mental tests. The impossibility of adequate treatment of the subject in small compass has, however, necessitated the expansion of that early undertaking into the present work. In the introductory sections of the volume, I have sought to show the general purposes of mental tests, to lay down rules for their conduct, and to explain the methods of treating data. In this connection I discuss the calculation of measures of general tendency, measures of variability, indexes of correlation, and other statistical constants. In the body of the volume, I have brought together, for specific treatment, some fifty of the most promising tests. In every case, my plan has been to sketch the development of the test, to prescribe a standard form of apparatus and method of procedure, to explain the treatment of the data secured, and to set forth the results and conclusions thus far obtained. The tests that I have selected may not prove, ultimately, to be those of most value, but they are, I think, numerous enough, and varied enough in type, to furnish a working basis for investigations for some time to come"--Pref.

The psychological methods of testing intelligence by William Stern( )

14 editions published between 1914 and 2010 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.

"For the purposes of correcting some errors and misunderstandings and of explaining in a clear and accurate manner the theory, nature, and practical use of intelligence tests, the present Yearbook has been compiled. It is composed of two parts. In Part I the more theoretical, general, and technical aspects of mental testing are set forth in such a manner, it is hoped, that the treatment may be easily understood by those who have little expert knowledge of, or skill in, the matters here considered. Indeed, it is the aim in this part of the Yearbook, as well as in the following part, to set forth the facts in regard to mental testing in as simple and direct a way as possible, so that all who are interested in the subject may get a real insight into the theory and the uses of mental testing. Part I attempts to show just what is to be understood by the term "general intelligence," to indicate how this may be measured and to show the steps by which mental tests have grown up and some of their most essential characteristics. Further, the attempt is made to acquaint the teacher and administrator with the correct methods of studying and evaluating the results of mental testing. A descriptive bibliography is added which furnishes information in regard to the various group tests of intelligence now available. A brief chapter is added on the importance of measurement in education generally. Part II takes up in some detail the administrative uses of intelligence tests in various grades of instruction, beginning with the primary grades and ending with the college and university. In the discussions in this part of the book the purpose is to set forth in some detail the procedure and results of mental testing as far as they relate to matters of instruction and administration"--Introduction.
