Courtis Tests in Arithmetic: Value to Superintendents and Teachers


by Stuart A. Courtis — 1916

From August 1, 1914, to August 1, 1915, between four and five hundred thousand tests (455,007) of the various Courtis standard research tests were sent from Detroit to school men in 42 different states. This material was mainly Series B Arithmetic Tests, and the growth from the use of the tests by a single school in 1909 maybe taken as an index of the growth throughout the United States of the interest in the movement for measurement. It should be evident at once that if this great quantity of material is being used so as to result in benefit to the schools tested, then measurement must be already exerting throughout the country a very widespread influence on the teaching of arithmetic. On the other hand, this extensive use of testing material may represent merely natural curiosity and an experimental trial by wide-awake school men of a new and much-discussed type of examination.
