Psychological Test Score Sheet, Intelligence Examination (Performance Scale)

Usage conditions apply
This document is entitled “Intelligence Examination Performance Scale.” In the front is a score sheet for a battery of six tests that include a ship test, a manikin and feature profile, cube induction, cube construction, form boards, and design. Further sheets give a place for information about a digit symbol test, a maze test, a picture arrangement test, and a picture completion test. The test is stamped with the name of the donor, “SAMUEL KAVRUK”. A mark in pen on the upper left side reads: Healy-Fernald?” A printed mark reads: B53818-M.B.B.-1-28. The test is otherwise undated and no scores are entered.
In 1911, the English-born, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and neurologist William Healy (1869-1963), director of the Chicago Juvenile Psychopathic Institute (considered by some to be the first child guidance clinic), and the Grace Maxwell Fernald (1879-1950) , formerly the psychologist of that Institute, published a test for mental classification of young people seen in the juvenile courts of that city. This was a battery of twenty-two tests, quite different from the six tests listed on the cover of this document.
