Exceptional children by Florence Laura Goodenough( Book )

16 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many years I have felt that the major difficulty faced by the child who differs markedly from others of his age and sex is not so much the fact of difference as it is the feeling of difference for which the objective facts are but partially responsible. Equally and in many cases more important for the child's general adjustment and happiness is the manner in which others react to his exceptional characteristics. In this volume, we have attempted to provide college students, teachers, parents, and others with a better idea of the nature and needs of children who differ so markedly from the generality that some special provision for their education and training is essential or at least highly desirable"--Foreword.

The Kuhlman-Binet tests for children of preschool age, a critical study and evaluation by Florence Laura Goodenough( Book )

25 editions published between 1928 and 1976 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The problem of the measurement of intelligence in children below the age of six years is of great importance in both its practical and theoretical aspects. In the past, owing to both educational and social demands, interest in intelligence has been concerned largely with the older child, and a considerable body of scientific knowledge and methodology with reference to the standardization and the criteria to be used in intelligence-test measurements has been developed. In the study which is here presented, Dr. Goodenough has applied these scientific criteria in a thoroughgoing and far reaching way to the problem of intelligence testing in young children, and has made a critical evaluation of the tests in the younger years. On reading the monograph, it will become clear that the methods developed in the standardization and evaluation of tests for older children have been applied with scientific rigor to the tests used below the school level and that the techniques and methods have been improved. Dr. Goodenough's work is in many respects a model investigation in the field of intelligence-test evaluation, both with regard to the techniques employed and the results obtained"--Preface.

Experimental child study by Florence Laura Goodenough( )

17 editions published in 1931 in English and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last decade has been marked by a rapidly increasing interest in the field of child development in both its scientific and its practical aspects. Nowhere has this interest been more apparent than in the period of development commonly known as that of "the young child" or "the preschool child." The need of a book for students of child behavior, teachers, and parents which will describe in simple and understandable form the principles and methods of scientific child study has been sensed by many. In this book, through a series of experiments and exercises, we have tried to outline the methods available for the study of young children both prior to and after their entrance into school, and to give insight into the scientific possibilities inherent in the study of children. In so doing we have drawn extensively upon the modern literature, much of which is relatively inaccessible because of its very recency and because of the fact that the field is one in which the collection of data has outstripped its presentation in textbook form. The book is the outcome of five years experience in teaching courses in experimental child study"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

"The field of child psychology is almost as old as is the field of experimental psychology. Experimental psychology has had a much older scientific and academic status, but at the present time it is probable that much less money is being spent for pure research in the field of experimental psychology than is being spent for pure research in the field of child psychology. In spite of this obvious fact, many experimental psychologists continue to look upon the field of child psychology as a proper field of research for women and for men whose experimental masculinity is not of the maximum. This attitude of patronage is based almost entirely upon a blissful ignorance of what is going on in the tremendously virile field of child behavior. The time is not far distant, if it is not already here, when nearly all competent psychologists will recognize that one-half of the whole field of psychology is involved in the problem of how the infant becomes an adult psychologically. It is believed that a proper and systematic presentation of the problems of child psychology, presented as problems experimentally investigated, will demonstrate a field of scientific research surprisingly full of accomplishment and of promise even to some of the experts in the field itself. The main reason for this surprise is that most of the books in child psychology have been either highly specialized monographs or highly popularized elementary textbooks. There has not yet been a single volume treating the entire field of child psychology which could be useful to students already acquainted with psychology and already expert in child psychology"--Preface.
