College News and Departmental Notes: Elementary Education

by Departmental notes - 1922

The students and teaching staff in the major course in elementary supervision are engaged in an interesting piece of field work at Fort Lee, N. J. By request from a group of Fort Lee citizens, and with the hearty approval of Superintendent A. E. Chase, the work was begun on November 22. Almost before dawn on this date, ninety-one students, led by Professors McCall, Hillegas, and Day, set forth from the College amply armed with intelligence and educational tests. The High School in Fort Lee was reached at 9.45 a.m., and the entire school system was put into the hands of the invaders. Before three o'clock in the afternoon every child in grades from the second through the eighth had been given the National Intelligence Test, the Thorndike-McCall Reading Scale, the Woody-McCall Arithmetic Scale, and a spelling test adapted from the Ayres Spelling Scale. At noon the Fort Lee Board of Education entertained the entire company of examiners at a most delightful dinner. At three o'clock the Fort Lee teachers joined the Teachers College students and staff in the high school auditorium and assisted in the scoring of papers and the tabulation of results.
