Gregory, The Oxford Companion to the Mind (1987) p. 88 In 1904,and%20those%20who%20were%20inferior.</ref>, the French Ministry of Education asked psychologist Alfred Binet to devise a method that would determine which students did not learn effectively from regular classroom instruction so they could be given remedial work. Along with his collaborator Théodore Simon, Binet published revisions of his test in 1908 and 1911, the last of which appeared just before his death.
