Because success in many industries and activities depends to a large extent on ability to acquire skill in coordination of eye and hand, a measure of this capacity would prove very serviceable in both vocational guidance and selection. We are now trying to determine whether an apparatus providing a moving target of known size, following a constant predictable path at a uniform rate of speed will give an index of such capacity. This index is to be found by measuring the observer's ability to hold a ringed, metallic pointer on the moving target.
