Usage conditions apply
After their widespread use during World War One, experts increasingly used psychological tests as a tool to rank and sort people in contexts including (but not limited to) education and employment. The Revised Minnesota Paper Form Board Test (Series BB) was prepared by R. Likert and Wm. H. Quasha (New York University). The booklet folds out and includes six pages of front-and-back text and images. The instructions found that the test-taker only had twenty minutes to complete the test. Finally, the instructions found that the parts in the problems were taken from the Minnesota Paper Form Board Tests, in an article entitled “Mechanical Ability Tests,” University of Minnesota Press, pages 94-101
