The Use of Intelligence Tests in the Classification of Pupils in the Public Schools of Jackson, Michigan


by Helen Davis 1922

There are numerous school systems, apparently, in which more or less systematic use has been made of intelligence tests, but in which the scores obtained from these tests have not been put to the fullest possible use for the improvement of organization, placement, and instruction. Naturally, the extent to which reclassification can be effected on the basis of test results is dependent upon the general lay-out of the system in question, the distribution of ability in its population, its financial resources, the availability of class- rooms and teachers, and many other factors. It is probable, indeed, that no scheme could be laid down in detail that would fit any large number of school systems. Nevertheless, it has seemed likely that an account of the manner in which a plan of intelligence testing has been related to a system of special classes in one American city might prove helpful to those who are undertaking similar work in other cities of similar size and character.
