ABSTRACT

This monograph describes in detail numerous methods for determining objectively by specific tests the personality responses of nursery school and kindergarten children. The writers and observers are all trained in progressive education.

The monograph is divided into four parts as follows: experiments in free play, experiments in group play and readiness for destruction, experiments in active play technics, observing children in nursery school situations.

Studies of this kind are extremely valuable, because they promote an objective attitude toward children, give valuable information about growth and focus the attention of physicians, teachers and parents on fascinating growth patterns rather than on the forcing of impossible standards on children. From studies such as these one will be able to understand the individual personality characteristics of children in the same way that one now recognizes individual intelligence characteristics. It will then be possible to help each child reach a maximum growth.
