"This book of reprinted articles from the journal "L'Anně 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)
