Usage conditions apply
Roy Frink Street (1898-1960) designed a test called the Gestalt Completion Test as an instructor in psychometrics at Columbia University. The test consisted of a series of thirteen incomplete images. Street found that responses did not correlate highly with other completion tests or with intelligence tests. These two cards from the test show incomplete images of an airplane and a sailboat. They are wrapped in plastic. There is no manual.
