Vocation Ability
Is Now Tested.
By NewMeans1
Psychology Prof. Greene's
Vocabulary Test Iased
On ConceptOf Terms
Abilities and training for various
vocations are tested by a new vo-
cabulary examination developed by
Prof. Edward B. Greene of the psy-
chology department, it was an-
nounced recently.
This ,test is designed to measure a
person's knowledge of basic concepts
in various fields by testing his grasp
of important terms used in these call-
ings. It is known as the Vocabulary
Profile test.
While psychologists have been in-
terested for some time in vocabular-
ies, both in the field of general men-
tal ability and in vocational success,
this new testing method is the first
to indicate the range of one's con-
cepts in important, independent
fields. Further, it allows for more
adequate solutions to such questions
as: What vocabularies are essen-
tial for certain vocations? What is
the importance of vocabularies in
reading skills? What is the impor-
tance of knowledge of a person's vo-
cabulary in educational and voca-
tional planning?
Master lists of over 6,000 words
were assembled by Dr. Greene from
text books with the help of techni-
cians in the fields to be tested. From
this list, which included the words
most important to work in each field,
single words of various degrees of
difficulty were selected to be used in
the test form. Thirty words were
chosen for each field to be covered,
care being taken that words in one
list were not duplicated in one of
the others.
Items were classified into eight
fields: human relations, commerce,
government, physical science, biologi-
cal science, mathematics, fine arts
and sports. Finally a careful check
was made to insure that the tests
were not confusing or too vague.

Arab Nationalist Leader Arrested

Nationalist riots in French-governed Tunisia led to the arrest of
Arab Sliman Ben Sliman and sharpened French concern over pro-Italian
activity among Moslem Nationalists. A French demand for cessation of
Italian anti-French propaganda in Tunisia may be a big point in
France-Italy pact talks.
