Psychological Test Documentation, Miller Analogies Test

Usage conditions apply
This folder has information on the Miller Analogies Test. The first sheet provides information on directions for giving the exam. The second sheet contains handwritten notes. The third sheet is entitled “Memorandum to Miller Analogies Test Centers” and discusses the problem of “a person who has taken the Miller Analogies Test at one time or another” who “may try to take it again on the theory that his second testing will yield a higher score.” This memorandum then outlines a plan on identify and record each test taker. The final sheet is entitled “Procedures for Recording the Administration of the Miller Analogies Test.” It is signed by Harold Seashore, who was the Director of the Test Division of the Psychological Corporation.
This document aligns with information about the development of the SAT and how Kaplan developed a test prep service based on the fact that one could study for the test.
