The development of intelligence in children by Alfred Binet ( Book )
13 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book of reprinted articles from the journal "L'Anne Psychologique" as a whole constitutes a complete history and exposition of the Measuring Scale as Binet left it. In Chapter I the authors show the origin of the Scale and their first methods of attacking the problem. Chapter II describes the first results--a series of test questions arranged in order of difficulty but not yet assigned to definite years. An immense amount of work had been done on this series, and the authors may have been justly proud of what they had accomplished, though it was soon to be largely discarded for a much more useful plan. This was the so called "1905 Tests." Chapter III shows the laborious and painstaking methods of standardization. Nowhere does Binet more clearly show his genius. It is here that he has taught us the method which must be used in all extensions or revisions of the Scale, that lay any claim to scientific value. In Chapter IV he gives us the Measuring Scale for Intelligence--the so called 1908 Scale. It is the most complete statement of the Scale. Chapter V gives some of his later 1911 corrections and revisions--his last word on the subject. In making up this book we have attempted to include everything Binet and Simon wrote explanatory of the Scale. The reader will find many repetitions and some contradictions, and the date of each article should be taken into account in deciding which is the authoritative statement. It has been thought best to include all of these repetitions and contradictions, in order to show the development of Binet's own thought in regard to his Scale. Only in this way does the marvelous work that he did on this subject become fully appreciated"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
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 )
61 editions published between 1916 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,059 WorldCat member 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)

Sex and personality; studies in masculinity and femininity by Lewis M Terman ( Book )
22 editions published between 1936 and 1968 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sex differences in personality and temperament are matters of universal human interest. They are rapidly coming to be recognized as one of the central problems in anthropology, sociology, and psychology. It is well that they should be so recognized; for sex differences are more than a perennial stimulus to idle speculation, wit, and literary art. Mass theories in regard to them are one of the most potent of all the forces that operate in the shaping of human societies. Unfortunately, investigations of masculinity and femininity have been retarded by lack of definiteness with respect to what these terms should connote. Gross departures from even a vaguely denned norm have of course long been recognized, but in the absence of quantitative methods the less extreme deviations are overlooked or misunderstood. The purpose of the investigations here reported has been the accomplishment in the field of masculinity-femininity of something similar to Binet's early achievement in the field of intelligence--a quantification of procedures and of concepts. No one can better realize than the authors how imperfectly they have succeeded in their pioneer attempt. The problem of temperament is no less complex than the problem of abilities. The concepts of masculinity and femininity are even more vague than the nineteenth century concepts of intelligence. Clarity and exactness are seldom attained by a single effort. Indeed, the investigations to be reported have been shaped by the conviction that only the simplest and roughest kind of quantification is at present possible, and that any attempt at exact measurement of the traits in question would, in the present state of psychometric development, be fatuous and unprofitable. The experiment will have justified itself if in some degree it opens the way to more precise measurements and methods"--Préface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 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 )
33 editions published between 1919 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member 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.

The hygiene of the school child by Lewis M Terman ( Book )
36 editions published between 1914 and 1930 in English and Undetermined and held by 539 WorldCat member 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.

Aptitude testing by Clark Leonard Hull ( Book )
9 editions published in 1928 in English and Undetermined and held by 410 WorldCat member 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.

Health work in the schools by Ernest Bryant Hoag ( Book )
13 editions published in 1914 in English and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member 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.

The Stanford revision and extension of the Binet-Simon scale for measuring intelligence by Lewis M Terman ( Book )
7 editions published in 1917 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The labors of Professor Terman and his co-workers at Stanford University in the critical examination and improvement of the Binet-Simon Scale for Measuring Intelligence are so well and so favorably known by psychologists and by the many users of the method that no words of editorial introduction are needed to call attention to the importance of the present monograph. The results of these labors are embodied in the Stanford Revision of the Binet-Simon Scale. A general guide for the application of this Revision has been published elsewhere. In the present monograph, however, the reader is taken 'behind the scenes, ' is shown the precise methods by which the Revision was made, the actual data on which it was based. There is introduced also an instructive discussion of a number of very salient questions: What is the nature of intelligence? How is intelligence distributed? What sex differences exist in intelligence? What is the relation between intelligence and social status? Between intelligence and school success? Is the intelligence quotient a valid measure? How shall the validity of any single test in an intelligence scale be determined? What principles should govern the assembling of tests into a system, or scale? These questions have more than a merely technical interest: they bear in many ways upon practical problems of school instruction and administration. The monograph should do much to stimulate and to clarify thinking, both in psychological and in pedagogical circles"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
