Psychological Test, New Jersey Composite Test


This folder contains two tests. Both are New Jersey Composite Tests. The first is the intelligence section, the second is the achievement section. The distinction between achievement and intelligence is significant in the history of psychology. This test was intended for use in fifth grade, but the directions noted it could be useful in other grades as well. It was prepared “by a committee appointed by the Commissioner of Education.”
