Abstract:

"The only final test of the validity of methods of teaching is found in the changes which are brought about in the knowledge, habits, thinking, and attitudes of pupils. In like manner, the particular forms of school organization, and the administrative procedures which are followed, must be judged by the results which are secured. The development of the technique of measurement in these fields constitutes one of the most important contributions in education during the past few years. Teachers have always sought to measure the results of their work. In the regular class periods and at stated times tests and examinations have been given in order to determine the progress which pupils are making. The traditional examination, at its best, was a very imperfect instrument. With the development of the technique of measurement in the field of education, it has been possible not only to determine more accurately the achievements of pupils, but also to diagnose their particular difficulties. It seems reasonable to expect that every careful professional worker will in some degree master this important instrument of his profession. In the earlier chapters of this book Dr. Trabue has given many illustrations of the use of the techniques commonly employed in the measuring of results. In the later chapters he has established the validity of the processes of measurement through a discussion of their derivation, and by further illustration of their application. The more important problems with which teachers and supervisors are constantly struggling are used for purposes of illustration. The author has in this manner gained the double advantage of making the book relatively easy to understand, and at the same time placing the student who masters it in possession of the techniques which he will employ in his everyday work"--Introduction.
