Mental Growth in Young Children

by Nancy Bayley - 1940

In a cumulative study of growth and development at the Institute of Child Welfare of the University of California we have given mental tests at regular intervals to a group of 61 children from the time they were one month of age. Forty-eight of these children have been tested through 9 years. The tests have been given at 28 age levels; namely, every month at first, and as the children grew older, at three-month, six-month, and then twelve-month intervals. The testing procedures and results of the tests during the first three years have been described in detail in an earlier publication (3) and will not be repeated here, except as they are included in the comparisons with data for the later ages.
