Using the correlation between first and second tests with more than 200 cases on the Stanford-Binet (up to the sixth year) and the retesting coefficient found by Good-enough for the Kuhlmann-Binet up to the six-year level, the author thinks that there is an indication that the reliability of the...
When the report of students as to their preference for certain types of problems in arithmetic was compared with the standing of students in terms of successful solution of these various types of problems, it was found that a correlation of .56 existed between the two factors. It seems, then,...
Using the revised scoring method described in an earlier paper, the author examines results obtained with the Kohs block-design tests and finds that of three factors, success, speed and moves, the third is of no value for increasing either the diagnostic value of the test or its validity. He...

A method is described for reducing raw scores from two or more tests to some sort of comparable measure which takes into account the necessity for reducing the separate distributions into comparable normal distributions.
A survey of the marks of 100 spring-term classes of the Iowa State Teachers College was made with a view to ascertaining the degree to which marks were distributed on the basis of the classes to which the students belonged. All classes selected contained at least 14 students of at least two...
Tests using such unfamiliar learning material as an Anglo-Saxon vocabulary were made under different sets, and it was found that a somewhat slower drop in the forgetting curve occurs when a temporal set is introduced by the knowledge that delayed recall will be required.
The author is of the opinion that the Army Alpha lends itself better even than the Stanford-Binet to the problem of the diagnosis of special ability or disability. Scores on individual tests which are sufficiently high or sufficiently low to be indicative of special ability or disability have...
