Abstract

There is a persistent demand for validity coefficients of some sort in the field of applied psychology. The simplest criterion is often chosen. The Binet-Simon test has been validated almost entirely against an academic criterion. This may or may not be justified as there are many who believe that intelligence is more than mere scholastic aptitude. With more recent explorations, by factor analysis and other techniques, this belief has considerable experimental support. We have thus sought for a criterion and too often have been content with that which gives the highest validity coefficients.
