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 )
19 editions published between 1916 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 845 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).

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 )
14 editions published between 1919 and 1990 in English and held by 526 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.

Aptitude testing by Clark Leonard Hull ( Book )
5 editions published in 1928 in English and held by 363 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 hygiene of the school child by Lewis M Terman ( Book )
15 editions published between 1914 and 1930 in English and held by 341 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.

Health work in the schools by Ernest Bryant Hoag ( Book )
11 editions published in 1914 in English and held by 211 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.
