WILUNA DEVELOPMENTS THE RAILWAY CONSTRUC TION PLANT TO TBEAT 40,000 TONS PER MONTH. Matters relating to the Wiluna gold' mines were referred to the chairman of the Associated Mining and Finance Co., Ltd. (Mr. F. H.

EDUCATION PROBLEMS MENTAL TRAINING OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 22 January 1929
EDUCATION PROBLEMS MENTAL TRAINING OF CHXL DEEN. One of the most important pro blems which Victorian educationists expect to come within the scope of the Carnegie Educational Rescarcu Institute is that of conducting mental tests. The Victorian committee of the institute is now iu process of for-' luation. In education circles it is contended that a twofold purpose wonld be served by the tests — the segregation of the sub-normal chil dren and the scientific classification of the normal children on the basis of educationability instead of relying on the chronological basis, which at pre sent is a factor of organisation in Australian and English schools. In support of this contention it is claimed that the discovery of Binet of a natural and reliable standard and the demonstration by American psy chologists in selecting recruits for ser vice in the great war of what can be done1 with group testing have every where opened the eyes of educationists to the importance of this agency. But w...
