Abstract

The need for a rapid and efficient method of estimating adult intellectual level on an individual examination basis has been felt with increasing urgency in the past few years. An instrument of this type should include, to as great an extent as possible, the statistical advantages of a well standardized individual test along with the advantage of administrative economy. A brief scale meeting these criteria should be useful as a clinical screening device. It should be of some service as a method of sifting out of a large group those individuals who should be given further examination. Such an instrument should also be useful for various placement problems where large groups must be dealt with, and as an aid in research where groups or individuals need to be matched for intelligence.
