Description
These documents are entitled “Manual” and are associated with the Dearborn Group Tests (Series II, for Grades IV to XII). Compare to object 316371.07.01. The test was copyrighted in 1920, 1922, and 1924. According to the directions, “Series II is comprised of C and D and is especially designed for use in grades IV and XII.” It could also be used for “testing of normal and college classes, and of other adult groups.” The Manual includes detailed directions for the examiner, including scripts for the test proctor, and directions for scoring the general examinations. Moreover, it provides information on the interpretation of intelligence quotients, grade comparisons, and the reliability and validity of Series II. The two booklets appear to be identical.
