Tests then, are desirable, first, which will measure a pupil's ability to use these details correctly; second, which will show his ability in relation to that of other pupils of the same advancement in school; third, which will reveal wherein he needs individual instruction or drill; fourth, which will be a criterion of the course of study or of the teaching; and, fifth, which will after an interval give evidence of his improvement.
