Summary

This conference focuses upon various aspects of testing within a society, and upon technical advances in measurement. Philip H. DuBois's paper deals with China, a society dominated by tests, from 1115 BC--1905 AD. Donald W. Fiske discusses the effect of testing on the individual in modern America in his paper, "The Subject Looks at Psychological Tests." Three psychometricians discuss several new mathematical approaches to the analysis of test data: Louis Guttman, "The Structure of Interrelations Among Intelligence Tests;" Henry F. Kaiser, "Psychometric Approaches to Factor Analysis;" and Ledyard R Tucker, "Experiments in Multi-Mode Factor Analysis." Omar Khayyam Moore speaks on "Technology and Behavior." The four final papers dealt with various issues related to the testing of the culturally different: "Measurement Issues in the Counseling of the Culturally Disadvantaged," Martin Hamburger; "Principles of Developing Tests for the Culturally Different," William E. Coffman; "The Measurement of Environments," Richard Wolf; and "Social Class and Cultural Group Differences in Diverse Mental Abilities," Gordon Fifer. (BH)
