Summary

Four topics were emphasized during this conference on testing problems: (1) the selection of appropriate score scales for tests; (2) the experimental approach to the measurement of human motivation; (3) trends in public opinion polling since 1948 and their probable effects on predictions of the 1952 election; and (4) techniques for developing unbiased intelligence tests. Eric F. Gardner and Ledyard R. Ticker both discussed the importance of reference groups in scaling procedure; discussions by John C. Flanagan and E. F. Lindquist followed. David C. McClelland presented the address on the measurement of human motivation; a panel discussion followed. The luncheon symposium focused on the trends in public opinion polling since 1948, and the prediction of the 1952 elections. Sampling, interviewing, and data analysis were discussed by Frederick F. Stephan, Herbert Human, and Samuel Stouffer, respectively. The session on unbiased intelligence tests included papers by Irving Lorge, Phillip J. Rulon, and Ernest A. Haggard; Quinn McNemar and Ernest A. Haggard commented on the papers. (An example of Phillip Rulon's Semantic Test of Intelligence--STI--is included.) (GDC)
