On previous experimentation with the Grinnell Eye-hand Coordination Test it was observed that each subject approached the test in a different manner. Could these things be observed during the test performance? If these observations could be made with reasonable accuracy, it would be likely that this technique would give us much needed information regarding the work habits and other personal characteristics of the person taking the test. With this purpose in mind it was decided to make some direct observations of persons taking the Grinnell Eye-hand Co-ordination Test. B. L. Travers (1941) in his article IMPROVING PRACTICAL TESTS, has also expressed the need for a procedure of direct observations which will show personal characteristics of subjects being tested.
