In the preparation of this paper,it is the purpose of the writer to compare the traditional type examinations with the newt type examinations as to their relative worth; and to suggest some ways of constructing both types of examinations so as to yield the greatest return.
Almost all who are engaged in educational work,either as students or teachers,are vitally interested in the subject of marks and examinations. For a long time to come instructors will feel compelled,in order to assure themselves from time to time of the character of work which is being done in their courses,to offer some kind of test designed to furnish this information.
This situation makes the writing of this paper on Essay and New Type examinations especially necessary. For a long time a large amount of experimentation has been in progress looking to the formulation of New types of examinations which may be assumed to be more objective in character than the essay examinations and which may lessen,if not eliminate, some of the evils which are incidental to the use of the essay examination. A large number of educational institutions,ranging from the elementary schools to the professional schools,are making a more extensive use of the various types of new examinations. The writer of this paper presents the essay type examinations and some of the more commonly known types of new examinations and some of the modified types which have not been used to as great an extent.
