This is Test VI (Form A). The booklet is four pages long (double sided) and was copyrighted in 1920 by the Bureau of Personnel Research. However, the test does not have a title. The cover page has blank spaces to record name, place of birth, how long the test-taker had spent in U.S., and information about the test-taker’s employment. On the back there is a red cardboard sheet that is folded over onto the left margin and contains two hole punches. The booklet contains two pages of directors and 184 different questions.
The collection also contains a test with letterhead from the Boston City Hospital, Neurological Unit, Psychometric Tests. The project appears to be under the direction of Merrill Moore (M.D.) and F.L. Wells (PhD). The first sheet has 59 questions. The second sheet is entitled “BOSTON CITY HOSPITAL, NEUROLOGICAL UNIT, Psychometric Tests, Vocabulary Sheet.”
