First published in 1942, Testing Results in the Infant School describes an attempt to measure objectively the results of education in Infant schools where children are free to move and speak and play, as compared with schools of a more formal and traditional type.
The book explains in detail the variety of tests used, the reasons behind them, and the children’s reactions to them. It concludes with an evaluation of the results and suggestions for their bearing on educational practice. It will appeal to those with an interest in the history, theory, and psychology of education.
