Open-Air Schools: Part.7 Some Tests for Determining the Efficiency of the Methods of Open-Air Schools


by Siegried Maia Hansen Upton - 1914

It is very desirable to test the efficiency of the open-air school especially in comparison with the regular indoor school. It is especially valuable to know in what particulars the pupils of the open-air schools are in advance of the regular pupils. To determine these matters physical and mental tests should be given frequently to classes of the same age and grade in both indoor and outdoor schools. To be of greatest value the tests should be given to children of the same average state of health in both schools. It will not be especially helpful to test invalids in an open-air school and to compare these results with normal children in the indoor school. So far as possible it is necessary that the groups of children to be compared start at about the same place with respect to age, grade, development, and health. These tests to be of value should be applied to large numbers of pupils.
