Intelligence Tests


[ocr errors]

Grades 1 to 3 Compiled under the direction of Dr. W. F. Dearborn,

Professor of Psychology of Harvard University

The results of ten years' scientific investigation. Not a linguistic test, but a series of three group tests to be given as pleasant games which secure the most natural response from children.

A Teacher's Manual gives complete instruction — the tests are easily given by the classroom teachers. A record is furnished free of charge, giving directions and standards for finding the Mental Age of the Intelligence quotient.

The record card is to be filled out in duplicate, one copy to be forwarded to Dr. Dearborn, giving our patrons the opportunity to receive the monthly results of standard and correlation studies carried out at the Graduate School of Education at Harvard.

like, love These games are for use in the First, Second, and Third Grades and may be profitably used in some Fourth Grades.

They are not intended to take the place of regular language work but rather to supplement that work, giving the necessary drill without making that drill irksome.

The attention of the children is directed wholly to the fun in playing the game — they should not think of it as language work.

The games are so planned that every child in the room may have an active interest in every part of the game, so that each one is interestedly attentive to all that is said and done.

SPECIAL FEATURES A blank page is left at the end of each game. In these the teacher will find it helpful to note any variations in the games which she may find especially applicable to her own class, locality or other condition.
