Dressmaker's aptitude test, England, 1921-1939

The webbing, needles and pins were used in a test to determine a worker’s skill and suitability to dress making. Tests like this one were carried out by The National Institute of Industrial Psychology (NIIP). Set up in Britain in 1921, the NIIP applied physiology and psychology to industry and business to improve efficiency. In practice, many male workers were shielded from psychological testing by trade unions, unlike female workers.
