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 TAT Summary Record Blank: An Aid in the Analysis and Evaluation of Thematic Apperception Tests Stories was written by Pauline G. Vorhaus. The front of this double-sided single-sheet provides blanks to record information on the test-taker (subject, sex, date, occupation, age, examiner, education, and marital status). The back lists eighteen different categories and blanks that correspond to different card numbers. For further context, see TAT Summary Record Blank Manual of Directions (1983.0168.25).
