Abstract:

"The present almost universal employment of standard tests, in the public schools, has made it essential that there should be available for teachers a brief and simple statement of those few elements of statistical method which it is necessary for a teacher to know, if the best use is to be made of the results of the testing. The books on statistics at present available are, for the most part, too elaborate and technical for the needs of the busy teacher. They present many special methods which are rarely if ever used by her, and they usually omit explanation of certain elementary procedures about which some discussion is necessary for those who are attempting to acquaint themselves with statistical methods without the aid of an instructor. It is for such teachers in service that these lessons are especially intended; they enable a teacher to instruct herself in the few essential statistical procedures which every teacher should know. The lessons have also been found very valuable, however, in first courses dealing with mental and educational tests. Methods of tabulating, using norms, and graphing can be really learned only by using them; the chapter on statistical methods in the usual book on tests is of necessity inadequate. These practice exercises will actually establish these skills. It is believed, in short, that for both the teacher who is instructing herself and for the student in a beginning course on tests these lessons will prove of decided helpfulness"--Book.
