Summary

This conference focused on the broad theme, improving the quality and scope of measurement. The first session centered on improving criteria for educational and psychological measurement, with papers on Criteria for Complex Mental Processes by Robert C. Wilson and on Criteria of Nonintellectual Aspects of Personality by Morris I. Stein. The second session considered the improvement of measurement through letter exercise writing, with papers on exercise writing in the field of the humanities (by Paul B. Diederich), in the natural sciences (by Leo Nedelsky), and in the social sciences (by Max D. Engelhart). The luncheon address on Prediction of Educational and Vocational Success Through Interest Measurement was given by Edward K. Strong, Jr. The final session concerned the application of test users' problems as guides to better measurement. Discussions included The School Administrator's Problems for Testers, by Paul T. Rankin; Discussion of the School Administrator's Problems, by Roger T. Lennon; The Guidance Director's Problems Suggestions for the Test Specialist, by Edward Landy; and The Consumer and the Producer, by Donald E. Super. (BH)
