Test Service Bulletin, n43 p12-15 Feb 1952
The necessity for counselors to use modern methods of appraising abilities in order to fill the demand in engineering and the sciences is discussed. Aptitude test scores for three groups of males are charted to illustrate the first problem, identifying those with the requisite talents. Practical problems in identification and counseling and their solutions are discussed. Early testing, in the eighth or ninth grade, is recommended to allow time for adequate career planning in engineering and the sciences. (For related documents, see TM 002 846-847.) (KM)
