Fifty years ago, Harvard University President James Bryant Conant and Henry Chauncey, head of the new Educational Testing Service, launched a 50-year utopian social experiment using the then-young science of intelligence testing to create a new democratic elite. "The Big Test" offers a keen assessment of what went wrong and what the future may hold in this area.
