Description

Excerpt from Heredity, Correlation and Sex Differences in School Abilities: Studies From the Department of Educational Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University The extent to which hereditary relationships influence mental traits is a fact of prime importance to educational theory and practice. For all our educational endeavor is conditioned by the original natures of the individuals whose mental traits we attempt to change for the better. The re lationships between mental traits in the same individual are also facts of no less importance to educational science than to theoretical psychology. For arguments for and against the existence and amount of disciplinary value of the differ ent studies, schemes for groups of studies and the arrange ment of curricula in general, rest in part upon opinions con cerning the relationships of the abilities involved in the different school studies; and, finally, the nature of any ability or set of abilities will be defined as much by its relationships with others as by its own analysis.
