International Conference of Psychotechnics
The fourth International Conference of Psychotechnics was held, this week, in Paris, under the presidency of Dr. Toulouse. Many foreign delegates were present. Questions pertaining to the value of intelligence tests and their standardization with relation to vocational guidance were discussed. It was proposed to create intelligence tests of an international character. At the close of the conference, a number of permanent committees were appointed in order to assure international collaboration in various fields, as follows: (1) a committee on the unification of psychotechnical terminology; (2) a committee charged with the study of the psychologic causes of accidents; (3) a committee charged with the study of educative capacity, and (4) a committee entrusted with the duty of preparing psychotechnical tests. Utrecht was chosen as the next place of meeting of the conference in 1928.
