dc.description.abstractThe gradation and classification of pupils, the nature of the curriculum and methods of teaching, have long been vital questions for educators. The mental measuring rods for classification and promotion which have been universally applied are: 1) the amount assimilated of the knowledge specified in the school curriculum, and 2) the teacher's judgment of the child's ability. The need of a more scientific procedure has for some time been felt by those who are busy with these practical problems. The appalling number of repeaters in the grades, year after year, demands that these questions cease to be mere matters of opinion but be based upon accurate knowledge of mental abilities. The desire to render some service to the great body of workers in the field of education and to prevent what is probably avoidable waste of time of our boys and girls has led me to attempt furnishing some information upon this subject.eng
