Certain aspects of the system are in themselves striking and significant: it adapts to the education of normal children methods and apparatus originally used for deficients; it is based on a radical conception of liberty for the pupil; it entails a highly formal training of separate sensory, motor, and mental capacities; and it leads to rapid, easy, and substantial mastery of the elements of reading, writing, and arithmetic. - Introduction

"For the purposes of correcting some errors and misunderstandings and of explaining in a clear and accurate manner the theory, nature, and practical use of intelligence tests, the present Yearbook has been compiled. It is composed of two parts. In Part I the more theoretical, general, and technical aspects of mental testing are set forth in such a manner, it is hoped, that the treatment may be easily understood by those who have little expert knowledge of, or skill in, the matters here considered. Indeed, it is the aim in this part of the Yearbook, as well as in the following part, to set forth the facts in regard to mental testing in as simple and direct a way as possible, so that all who are interested in the subject may get a real insight into the theory and the uses of mental testing. Part I attempts to show just what is to be understood by the term "general intelligence," to indicate how this may be measured and to show the steps by which mental tests have grown up and some of their most essential characteristics. Further, the attempt is made to acquaint the teacher and administrator with the correct methods of studying and evaluating the results of mental testing. A descriptive bibliography is added which furnishes information in regard to the various group tests of intelligence now available. A brief chapter is added on the importance of measurement in education generally. Part II takes up in some detail the administrative uses of intelligence tests in various grades of instruction, beginning with the primary grades and ending with the college and university. In the discussions in this part of the book the purpose is to set forth in some detail the procedure and results of mental testing as far as they relate to matters of instruction and administration"--Introduction.

The Montessori method is characterized by an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child and clinical observation on the part of the teacher. It stresses the importance of adapting the child's learning environment to his or her developmental level, and of the role of physical activity in absorbing abstract concepts and practical skills.
