"Mental differences are as fre
quent and as striking in the human
family, as physical variations." said
Professor I. N. Madsen of the Uni
versity of Omaha, addressing the
Omaha Woman's club at its open
meeting Monday afternoon in the
Y. W. C Aauditorium. , "We don't
need tests to ascertain geniuses.5 nor
to detect the idiots, but there is a
wide range of mentality in between
which it is very advantageous for
many purposes, to be able to
classify." ... v
The first real intelligence tests
were definitely established in 1906,
according ( to the speaker. .These
were individual tests, however, and,
therefore, slow. A need for group
tests was obvious, and it was not
long after that they were worked
out Their greatest service was felt
during the recent war. The tests
applied to army men were, for the
purpose ot determining ability to
learn easily, to comprehend and fol
low instructions, to adapt one's self
to a new situation and to analyze a
new situation. Upon application of
the tests it was found that army men
prove to be 11 per cent superior, or
very superior; J5 per cent normal,
or slightly above n6rmal; 22 -per
cent low average and 32 per cent in
ferior. This same standard applied
to high school seniors brought the
following results:. None fell below
average, 49.6 per cent were very su
perior, ,36.5 per cent superior, 12.3
per cent high average and i.o per
cent average. Mr. Madsen explain
ed that the tests did not involve any
subject matter which would give
high school students an advantage,
but rather that a high school course
is in one sense a process of selec
tion, and the boy who reaches his
.senior year is usually one who start
ed with good native intelligence.
Very practical use was made of
intelligence' tests in the army. "In
many instances," Mr. Madsen told
his audience, men were entirely re
jected because they proved to- be
mentally inferior. In such cases in
dividual tests were made to bear
out the group test A man's work
was to some extent determined by
his response to the tests. A soldier
who was sub-normal in intelligence
was assigned to-a different duty
than one who tested normal or
superior." . A
A decided resentment was noted
when Professor Madseir exhibited
charts showing that ' boys invari
ably tested out higher than girls of
the same age or school grade under
the army tests. Sensing this feeling,
Mr. Madsen explained that the army
tests were favorable to men and
were designed for armynot general
purposes. He conceded that each
sex has its superior mental quali
ties. This- brought round of ap
plause from the feminine gathering.
"These intelligence tests can be
made of great every-day value,"
concluded the psychologist They
will enable us (1) to fix up our
school curriculum to meet the needs
of the pupils; (2) to segregate the
mentally defective; (3) to deal with
the morally delinquent in advance,
knowing the relation between moral
delinquents and mental deficrents
(4) to aid in juvenile court work.
