Performance Tests of Intelligence, Edinburgh, Scotland, 1928

James Denver and Mary Collins developed the performance tests in 1928 for use with deaf children. They measured ‘concrete intelligence…a type of intelligence that plays an important part in the practical work of the world.’ There are various tests in this set. These include a Block Design test, Cube Test, Domino Test and two Picture Completion Tests that involve assembling a face and a man from wooden puzzle pieces. These were used on the University of Aberdeen’s Experimental Education course in the mid-20th century.
