Psychologists are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of an analysis of complex social phenomena, especially in the area of democratic behavior. If we wish to know how democratic behavior develops, and how its development can be controlled, we must be able to evaluate the effects of various types of experiences on its growth and ultimate pattern. It is the purpose of this paper to describe briefly a series of tests which have been devised to study democratic behavior at the elementary school level, and to indicate the effects on behavior of certain special experiences that have been introduced.
