Abstract

The purpose of this project was to study the relation-ship that existed between the scores of fifty boys and fifty girls of a Midwestern suburban junior high school on the Differential Aptitude Test Battery Form 1,--DAT, a test for measuring the abilities of boys and girls in grades eight through twelve--and the scores of the same students on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--WISC, an individual intelligence test for children and young people between the ages of five and fifteen. This study had for its ultimate goal a better understanding of the concurrent validity between these two testing instruments. Concurrent validity is concerned with the relation of test scores to an accepted contemporary criterion of performance on the variable which the test is intended to measure" (Educational Testing Service, 1961).
