INTRODUCTION As chairman of the N. E. A. Commission on Revision of Elementary Education, I asked Professor Terman, in 1919, to accept responsibility for the preparation of a subcommittee report on the value of intelligence tests in school reorganization. It was Professor Terman's understanding that several hundred dollars would be available from the treasury of the National Education Association for the purpose of defraying the expenses of a somewhat detailed investigation of school grading by mental tests. As the expected funds were not made available at a sufficiently early date, certain changes were necessary in the plans of the subcommittee. Instead of an investigation of the entire question, de novo, it was decided to offer brief summaries and interpretations of typical experiments already under way in a number of school systems of the country which have for their purpose the adjustment of school methods, curricula, and organization to the individual differences of pupils as shown by mental tests. The result is this little book, which is offered to the educational public in the belief that it will prove of interest and help to the increasing thousands of teachers and school administrators who use mental and educational tests but are often at a loss to know what adjustments to make in the light of their test results.
