Even so, the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale had appeared at a time of strong demand and high optimism for the potential of measuring human behavior through tests. World War I and the creation of group tests had then added momentum to the testing movement. Shortly after the appearance of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale and the Army Alpha test, schools, colleges, and industry began using tests. It appeared to many that this new phenomenon, the psychological test, held the key to solving the problems emerging from the rapid growth of population and technology.
Achievement Tests Among the most important developments following World War I was the development of standardized achievement tests. Standardized achievement tests caught on quickly because of the relative ease of administration and scoring and the lack of subjectivity or favoritism that can occur in essay or other written tests.
In school settings, standardized achievement tests allowed one to maintain identical testing conditions and scoring standards for a large number of children. In , the development of standardized achievement tests culminated in the publication of the Stanford Achievement Test by T. Kelley, G. Ruch, and L. By the s, it was widely held that the objectivity and reliability of these new standardized tests made them superior to essay tests.
Their use proliferated widely. It is interesting, as we shall discuss later in the book, that teachers of today appear to have come full circle. Currently, many people favor written tests and work samples portfolios over standardized achievement tests as the best way to evaluate children Boerum, ; Harris, Rising to the Challenge For every movement there is a countermovement, and the testing movement in the United States in the s was no exception.
Critics soon became vocal enough to dampen enthusiasm and to make even the most optimistic advocates of tests defensive. Researchers, who demanded nothing short of the highest standards, noted the limitations and weaknesses of existing tests. Near the end of the s, developers began to reestablish the respectability of tests. By , the Stanford-Binet had been revised again. Among the many improvements was the inclusion of a standardization sample of more than individuals.
The Wechsler-Bellevue scale contained several interesting innovations in intelligence testing. Among the various scores produced by the Wechsler test was the performance IQ. Performance tests do not require a verbal response; one can use them to evaluate intelligence in people who have few verbal or language skills.
The Stanford-Binet test had long been criticized because of its emphasis on language and verbal skills, making it inappropriate for many individuals, such as those who cannot speak or who cannot read. In addition, few people believed that language or verbal skills play an exclusive role in human intelligence. In , the Binet test was drastically revised to include performance subtests. More recently, it was overhauled again in , as we shall see in Chapter 9.
Whereas intelligence tests measured ability or potential, personality tests measured presumably stable characteristics or traits that theoretically underlie behavior. Traits are relatively enduring dispositions tendencies to act, think, or feel in a certain manner in any given circumstance that distinguish one individual from another. For example, we say that some people are optimistic and some pessimistic.
Optimistic people tend to remain so regardless of whether or not things are going well. A pessimist, by contrast, tends to look at the negative side of things.
Optimism and pessimism can thus be viewed as traits. One of the basic goals of traditional personality tests is to measure traits.
As you will learn, however, the notion of traits has important limitations. The earliest personality tests were structured paper-and-pencil group tests.
These tests provided multiple-choice and true-false questions that could be administered to a large group. History indicates that tests such as the Binet and the Woodworth were created by necessity to meet unique challenges.
Interpretation of the Woodworth test depended on the now-discredited assumption that the content of an item could be accepted at face value.
