Education is gradually becoming less a custom and more of a science. The development of modern educational psychology is bringing about changes of management and method that are little short of revolutionary. Among the men's recent ideas there are some that seem pregnant with tremendous possibilities for the improvement of educational procedure. The most far reaching in its beneficial possibilities seems to be the idea of measuring the results of teaching and the intelligence of school children by means of standard tests.

In classifying elementary school pupils, it is too often the opinion of classroom teachers that tests are primarily supervisory Instruments and too difficult in operation, too obscure in Interpretation to be of any real aid to the Individual teacher in her work of classification.
