Excerpt from A Handbook of Mental Tests: A Further Revision and Extension of the Binet-Simon Scale

Again, it has become clear to the writer that the method of scoring adopted in the Binet - Simon system often proves to be inaccurate, for the reason that the judgment of the scorer is the main factor in determining the value of the response to a test. In the writer's experiments, the plan has been tried of having several examiners pres ent during the examination of a subject. Each examiner has estimated the value of every response. Often these estimates have differed because each examiner has been more or less biased in interpreting a subject's responses: and so the predilections and mental attitude of the exam iner has alwavs to be taken account of in the results of an examination. These variable factors will of course render any scale for the measurement of intelligence somewhat unreliable.

In attempting to correct these defects in the Binet Simon system, the writer has tested some devices of his own, and he has tried out suggestions made by others who have revised the binet-simon scale. In the process of looking about for a revision of the scale which would give a larger place to actual performance as compared with linguistic response, and which would insure a higher degree of accuracy in scoring the results of an examina tion, the writer came across the revision by Kuhlmann. Who has developed a modified binet-simon scale as an outgrowth of his work at the School for the Feeble - Minded. Faribault, Minnesota. It seemed to the writer, upon exam ination of the Ixuhlmann revision, that the two chief de feets in the sinet-simon scale had been remedied more adequately and satisfactorily than had been accomplished in any other revision. The writer consulted persons in different parts of the country who had been using the Kuhlmann scale, not onlv in respect to the two major points mentioned above. But also in regard to minor details. And their testimony confirmed his own convie tion; - that Dr. Kuhlmann has succeeded in producing a very useful scale for the measurement of intelligence.
