Guis do poorly on a. test like the Stenquist Assembly Test, so it became necessary to 
devise a test for female mechanical ability along' the lines in which girls exhibited 
skill and in which they were likely to find an opportunity to engage. The I.E.R. 
spent considerable time in investigating the matter and finally produced the I. E. R. 
Girls’ Mechanical Assembly Test. 
This test will do for girls what the Stenquist test does for boys. Like the Stenquist 
test, it measures not only mechanical intelligence but also the manipulative or manual 
skill which is so inextricably bound up with what is usually understood by mechanical 
intelligence. As stated before, a pencil and paper test dealing with pictures of things 
—mechanical symbols—will not measure all that goes to make up mechanical intelli¬ 
gence. A mechanical intelligence test is valuable only when it helps discover the 
combined traits of mechanical intelligence and the manual skill required to deal with 
things and mechanisms. 
The I.E.R. test is offered through the courtesy of Prof. E. L. Thorndike, of Columbia 
University, who secured for us the consent of Teachers College for its production. 
Dr. Toops, now of Ohio State University, will be glad to receive reports from the 
users of the test and will also be pleased to render any required assistance from the 
scientific side. 
The tests are eleven in number and consist of the following: A, stringing beads; 
B, inserting tape; C, rosette; D, cross stitch; E, key ring; F, clip chain; G, tape 
sewing; H, trunk tag; I, card wrapping; J. booklet; K, trimming paper. The tests 
are put up in a box and a suitable scissors furnished with each. Some of the material 
is used up in giving the test, so we have listed below supplies of additional material 
for giving 25, 50, and 100 tests. (231)............................................

Manual entitled “Tests for Vocational Guidance of Children Thirteen to Sixteen,’’ by 
Herbert A. Toops, Ph.D., and Staff of I.E.R., Teachers College, Columbia University. 
This book gives the history of the work done in connection with the selection of the 
tests and also gives all the details for administering, scoring, recording, and evalu¬

Thimbles Test, Spielman’s; N.I. of I.P. Devised for testing speed of arm movements. 
This apparatus consists of two sections; (1) a low wooden rack provided with two 
arms of different lengths and ten vertical pegs for supporting rubber-covered, open- 
top thimbles, and (2) a higher rack also provided with ten vertical pegs. The high 
rack is slotted at the base so that it can be slipped over either the short or long 
arm of the low rack in order to vary the problem. The test requires the subject to 
transfer the thimbles from the rear to the front rack and back again as speedily as 
possible. Instructions accompany each test. (140:129-131)......................... 
Electrical Inclination Test, Ruth’s. Consists of a booklet of 16 pages, four of which 
contain plates with 30 electrical devices and parts each, and two pages of questions. 
Interest and perceptual capacity along any line are at least two of the important 
factors that go toward making up what is usually termed “aptitude” for a vocation. 
They probably contribute as much toward success as all other factors combined. A 
temporary interest or a mistaken desire to enter a certain vocation can nearly always 
be distinguished from the natural bent and abiding interest by a carefully selected 
set of questions, and by observing the individual’s perception of detail and the ac¬ 
curacy with which parts of devices common to the vocation are recognized and placed 
A great deal of this information is readily picked up without conscious effort on the 
part of the subject with special aptitude for the vocation. 
This test is designed to demonstrate the individual’s interest in electricity, and the 
amount of practical information he has been able to gather and retain for practical 
application. The test is both diagnostic and prognostic, and being eminently practical, 
leaves no doubt in the mind of either teacher or pupil as to the latter’s inclination. 
The test has been thoroughly tried out and is recommended as a very satisfactory 
instrument for discovering whether or not an individual’s inclinations are electrical.
