Description
Karl J. Holzinger (1892-1954) and Norman A. Crowder (1921-1998) believed that it was important to test the individual factors usually combined in scores from intelligence tests. This is an example of such a test. It has separate tests of four factors – verbal (Test 1 and 2), spatial (Tests 3 and 4), numerical (tests 5 and 6), and reasoning (Test 7, 8 and 9) skills. In addition to the test itself, there is a manual and a punched key for grading Test 4.
Holzinger earned his undergraduate degree (1915) and masters (1917) from the University of Minnesota and his PhD. in mathematics and education at the University of Chicago (1922). He joined the faculty at Chicago, rising to the positon of professor of education. Crowder was a research psychologist at the Human Resources Research Center of the United States Air Force.
