The Influence of Improvement in Physical Condition on Intelligence and Educational Achievement


by Carolyn Hoefer & Mattie Crumpton Hardy - 1928

With the cooperation of Superintendent H. Ambrose Perrin and the public schools of Joliet, Illinois, the Elizabeth McCormick Memorial Fund, under the directorship of Miss Mary E. Murphy, has been making a three-year study of the effect of intensive health instruction on various aspects of the physical and mental growth of a group of 450 children. The present chapter comprises a report by two of the representatives of the Fund upon one phase of this investigation, viz., the effect of improvement in physical condition upon the intelligence and the educational achievement of a group of 343 elementary-school children. That there may be no confusion between these two studies, only those data having a direct bearing upon the point at issue are included in this article, except where the technique of procedure is so interwoven that separation is impossible. The main investigation is soon to be published elsewhere.
