Description
These two leaflets relating to vocational tests were published by the American Institute for Research. They would be of interest to researchers working on the history of management as well as historians of psychology. They are:
1- “Research Notes: Situational Tests for Evaluating Supervisory Skill.” It was published by the American Institute for Research (based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) in September 1957. The document describes how tests developed for the Air Force and the Navy can help identify supervisors in civilian positions.
2- A booklet distributed by the Springer Publishing Company in New York to advertise and sell the Tomkins-Horn Picture Arrangement Test. The test was written by Silvan S. Tomkins (of Princeton University) and John H. Miner (of Columbia University). Thus, this document will be of interest to researchers working on the history of advertising or psychology.
