Intellectual Abilities in the Adolescent Period: Their Growth and Development. A Statement of the Principles of the Growth and Significance of Intellectual Abilities and Implications for the Educational Program. Bulletin, 1948, No. 6
Segel, David
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
This bulletin on intellectual growth and development during the adolescent period is a cumulation of (1) a study of the results on certain aptitude tests used in the War Department adapted for secondary schools (2) an analysis of the research studies on the subject of intellectual abilities at the secondary school level. It is published with the hope that curriculum workers, guidance workers, and administrators will use it as a platform upon which the processes of actual programs are built. The more that knowledge about the growth and development of youth comes of light, the more accurate will be our attempts to provide the right kind of education. Although this formulation of principle is a crystallization of generalizations on the subject, the author is well aware as with all such formulations that it is subject to change and amplification as more and more knowledge accumulates. The formulation is appropriate at this time because of the special interest the Secondary Education Division of the Office of Education has in the reorientation and reconstructing of secondary education. A bibliography is included. (Contains 9 tables, 6 figures and 4 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
