RALLY DAY SUMMER TERM STUDENTS
>4
v
At the first chapel exercises for the summer session, announcements were made for the County Rally which was to take place on the following Tuesday. A week of hurried preparation began, the bulletin board was filled with notices of County meetings calling all the loyal sons and daughters of their respective counties to rally to the standard and surpass all others in stunts.
There was an air of expectancy as the time drew near, the air seemed charged with something which caused everyone to look forward eagerly to the time when all this enthusiasm would be let loose in one grand occasion. The day arrived at last and the counties commenced their din. There was Williams and Wood And Allen too From out their tin horns Much racket drew. The first stunt was the wedding of Mr. B. G. N. C. to Miss Seneca County.
The wedding procession headed by Rev. Fox marched slowly in to the strains of "Oh Promise Me" sung by Miss Marian Stackhouse. Many relatives from a dis- tance were present at the ceremony and wished the bridal couple best wishes for a long and prosperous life.
The Van Wert County Jazz Band, one of the best of its kind, did their best to entertain the audience and their efforts were fully appreciated.
The Hancock County students being very musical entertained the audience, first with original songs written by one of their own famous composers.
Then one of the ladies played a select- ion on the pipe organ which was designed and built by Hancock county especially for the Normal College. Wood county with over two hundred students march through an archway made of axes and branches making a very nice showing.
Williams county students were there with all the "pep" needed and made things lively with their noise.
Because we have not mentioned other counties does not mean that they were not there with a whole lot of enthusiasm, on'the contrary they were there, and made the County Rally for this year a decided success.
The judges awarded first prize to Seneca county, second to Hancock, and third to Van Wert.
Space does not permit us saying more, but as we close let this admonition fol- lows. Be Missionaries and draw to the College of our choice others from our counties end thus make our college the college of others.

OHIO has been greatly honored by the two great political parties, each selecting one of our prominent statesmen as their standard bearer.
Without regard to political ideas every Ohioan should be very proud of the fact that the nation looks to Ohio for leader- ship today, and we feel that the delegates both at Chicago and San Francisco, acted wisely, for whatever the outcome of the November election, we are sure of capable, conscientious leadership. As good citizens, it is our duty to take an active intelligent interest in the selection of your leaders.
Men and women alike must take time to become familiar with the fundamental principles of our government and the methods we employ to secure an expression of the people.
Therefore let us all be good citizens and do our part, not only by making a care- ful study of the issues and leaders of the nresent campaign, but also by exercising our duty as a voter.

PRESENT TENDENCIES IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATIONAL TESTS
AND MEASURES Chas. F. Reebs
A brief discussion of such a comprehen- sive subject must include only the essen- tials. The following types of tendencies might be presented.
(1.) Types of tests and scales now in existence; (2.) Types of uses now made of tests and scales; (4.) Research or effi- ciency bureaus; (5.) Consideration of measurements in educational associations; (6.) Literature on educational measure- ments; (7.) Reactions on present subject- ive methods of measurements; (8.) The technique of development or measurements and their use; (9.) Some factors in the movement about which caution should be observed.
Types of Tests and Scales Now In Use At least eight types of tests and scales,
some standardized and others not, make up the present body of this newer pro- cedure in educational measurements. First, there are the Binet-Simon general intelligence tests and their various mod- ifications.
The purpose of these tests furnish work in measurements of mental functions.
Of the general intelligence scales, there are also the Yerkes-Bridges point scale, the Otis point scale, the Myers Scale, and a few other examples. The special tests of the cancellation and association types con- stitute a minor group of this first general class.
The chief development of measurements for the schoolman is in the attempts to me.'isnre products of class room teaching. The first great group of these measure- ments are tests of mental functions of the informational and habitual types.
The scales for handwriting, tests in spell- ing, first year algebra scales, tests of his- torical and scientific information, are well known examples of this group.
Probably nine-tenths of existing scales and tests are primarily of this type. These were the first group to be brought into existence. It was easier to develop meas- urements of such' functions, and their growth served to educate investigators in the technique of development of scales. Tie opponents of the movement, observing the character of these tests, freely predict- ed that it would stop there and would re- sult in the widespread use of such meas- urements in the schools, and such use would inevitably result in undue stress on habit and routine functioins in learning.
Tie third important type of measure- ments to appear consists of tests and scales for the measure of thinking (reasoning, judgment.) Stones' Reasoning Tests in arithmetic is good example and widely known. J. P. Herring's tests in abilities in scientific thinking lists and attempts to measure the chief elements in scientific thinking. M. J. Van Wagenen's recenty developed tests of abilities in U. S. History in elementary school includes two scales for infoimation, two for thinking and two for character judgment.
In spite of Buckingham's recent critic- ism, it is the writer's view that more in- vestigation and development of tests should be made in this field.
The very difficult problem of producing tests of aesthetic (appreciative enjoyment) functions is being attacked. Thorndike's scale for drawing is a pioneer. Frintner aims directly at the problem in his tests of children's aesthetic apprecia- tion of pictures. It is not inconceivable that, in the near future, we shall have samples of literature arranged in order of their appreciative values, literary merit, well standarized, and of great service in measurement* of some of the elements of aesthetic appreciation. Iadce-J, there ar3 already promises of such KCaiea. In the field of music, the remarkable work of Seat Lore has resulted in a method of making evaluations of some of the elements of appreciative music.
This type of measurement is commonly considered the impossible by the opponents of standardized measurements. It is to ba hoped that the experimentation will prove so successful as to confound their claims.
The measure of ethical qualities is an- other difficult problem, yet there are two attempts to make score-cards that can be used for this purpose. The first is "a scale for measuring habits of good citizenship," by Upton and Chassell. An approach to the measurement of the same types of qual- ities is also observable in recent attempts to produce a score-Card for teacher rating. Measurement of educational institutions hf.s alfso been undertaken.
The development of tests for use in sel- ection and classification of army recruits, under the direction of Thondike has made it possible to do some measuring outside of the army. Madsen and Sylvester give data on use of these tests among high school students. There is a growing ten- dency to use intelligence tests in college entrance methods. Columbia University is an outstanding example. Reactions on Present Subjective Methods
of Measurements In a few cases, attention has been giv-
en to attempts to refine and make more re- liable the present subjective measurements. This is in marked contrast with the earlier stages of this movement during which the criticism of the subjective measurements brought about such constructive suggest- ions as checking by use of the probability curve, use of completion tests with the method right and wrong cases, and rating by relative position. Probably the best re- action, is the suggestion made by McCall in his "a new kind of an examination." The following statement accompanying dir- ections illustrate this.
"In general, the mountain ranges run east and west. True or False." If the state- ment is true, the pupil is to underline the word true; if •false, underline the word false. The pupils total score is the difference between the total correct underlining and the total incorrect underlinings.
Inasmuch as subjective tests will be used for many years, the need for improving
these (if it can be done) should not be overlooked and all attention given to the development of objective tests.
Technique of Statistical Method In the methods of developing new tests
and scales, there seems to be no new gener- al procedure, but practically follow the pattern established by the first attempts, such as were used in making Thorndike's handwriting scale, and Trabues' language completion in scales. However, some of the specific phases cf these methods are being used more carefully. This is shown by the r-e*bod used by Starch and Watters in their Latin tests as compared with the method rsed by Starch in developing his ear icr Latin tests.
In the use of statistical methods, there is a very evident tendency to improve…
