Description
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 Stanford Achievement Test was written by Truman L. Kelley, Richard Madden, Eric F. Gardner, Lewis M. Terman, and Giles M. Ruch. The test was published by the World Book Company and was copyrighted in 1952. This is the Advanced Battery Form J. The booklet is twenty-four pages long and tests nine different subject areas: paragraph meaning, word meaning, spelling, language, arithmetic reasoning, arithmetic computation, social studies (history, geography, and civics), science, and study skills. The front page of the booklet provides the option to record “Intelligence Test Information” if “an intelligence test was administered as part of the Stanford program.”
