Completion Tests for Public-School Use

by M. R. Trabue - 1916

Many of the tests upon which psychologists depend for their knowledge of an individual's mental characteristics are of such a nature that it is almost impossible to make extended use of them in the schoolroom. There are other very reliable psychological tests, however, which may be adapted to schoolroom use with comparatively few changes. One of these is the completion test, which psychologists have come to regard as an unusually good test of ability to think about words and language forms. In view of the fact that so much of the child's school work is dependent upon his ability to read and interpret printed words, it has seemed worth while to the writer to make such changes in the form of the completion test as will make it available for general use in schools.
