GREEN, RUSSEL F.; MARTINEZ, JUAN N.

FOLLOWING A DISCUSSION OF THE FOUR GENERAL GOALS, THE PROJECT REPORT OUTLINES THE NINE PHASES BY WHICH THE GOALS WERE ACCOMPLISHED. IN THE SECTION THAT FOLLOWS, THE RESULTS OF THE STATISTICAL ANALYSES, SUPPORTED BY NUMEROUS TABLES, ARE PRESENTED IN DETAIL. DATA COVER (1) ANALYSES OF THE TOTAL POPULATION REPRESENTED, (2) THE GUATEMALA EXTENSION OF THE PROJECT, (3) THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW MANUAL, (4) THE STANDARDIZATION SAMPLE OF THE TOTAL POPULATION REPRESENTED, (5) THE PROBLEM OF PREDICTING THE RATE OF CHANGE OF IQ AND THE NEED FOR AUTOMATIC ADJUSTMENT OF NORMS OR RESTANDARDIZATION, AND (6) THE PREDICTION OF NORMS FROM A RELATIVELY SMALL SAMPLE.
