4-Three identical copies of a document entitled “The Personnel Journal: The Minnesota Mechanical Ability Tests.” It was written by L. Dewey Anderson, Bureau of Educational Experiments, New York. This four-page document appears to be a typed version of an article that was received as a manuscript on February 1, 1928. The manuscript was primarily concerned with three tests: The Minnesota Assembly Test, the Paper Formboard Test, and the Spatial Relations Test. According to the document, the purpose of the article was to “describe the three tests, which have been made highly reliable and which have a good, an already demonstrated, and a statistically sound validity. It is felt that these tests will be of advantage to industry in that they will give the industrial psychologist a reliable means of measuring mechanical ability.”
