Description
After the large scale use of psychological tests by the U.S. Army in World War I, they increasingly were used as a tool to sort and evaluate people in other contexts, including education, counseling, and employment. The Vocational Interest Blank for Men (Revised, Form M) was written by Edward Kellog [sic] Strong (1884-1963), who had attended the University of California, obtained his PhD. at Columbia University in 1911, and worked in advertising and, during World War I, with the Army testing program. He then taught at the Carnegie Institute of Technology and at Stanford. Strong’s first test for the vocational interests of men appeared in 1927, one for women came out in 1933. Both were published by Stanford University, as was this version of the test for men, copyrighted in 1938. The test is printed on yellow paper and is eight pages long. Received with this test are three machine-readable answer sheets.
