Abstract

In order to arrive at the point of this paper on the subject, "The Iowa State College Reasoning Test" it is necessary to describe briefly the other tests of which it is one in the series. The psychological test which has been given this year to the Freshman class of Iowa State College is a modified Alpha. The Alpha was chosen as a basis on which to construct a new form for the reason that it has given consistently higher correlations than it has been possible to secure with any other test. In the modified form, Arithmetic, the Synonym and Antonym, the Disarranged Sentence, the Number Series, the Analogies and the Information tests remain very much the same as they appeared in the original form. The easier exercises at the beginning of each of these tests have been advanced to the bottom of the preceding page to serve in the capacity of fore-exercises which gives the student a preliminary practice before beginning the test proper. (After the fashion of the National Intelligence Test.) More difficult exercises were added toward the close of each test with the purpose of making the series more difficult.
