Kean and O'Connor (1927) reported the use of the O'Connor Blocks as a measure of mechanical aptitude. A study of the data indicated that superior performance was associated with a type of analysis characteristic of engineers and mechanics. In recent years the test has been used to some extent in the field of driver training and driver aptitude measurement. A study reported by Miller and Lauer (1946) with a group consisting largely of Oriental students gave low positive correlation with driving performance. The criterion used was not as reliable as the experimenters desired.
