ABSTRACT


Creating Order in School:
Intelligence Testing at Frederiksberg in the 1930s


In 1930, psychologist and public school teacher Henning Meyer began his educational psychology work at Frederiksberg, Denmark, launching a new and epochmaking practice that would soon spread to the entire Danish public school system. A central element of this practice was the Binet–Simon intelligence test, which was successfully used to sort children into either normal or remedial classes. This article analyses the beginning, the embedding and the practice surrounding this tool at Frederiksberg in the 1930s. Specifically, the article examines intelligence testing as an evaluation technology, how intelligence testing integrates with other evaluation technologies such as teacher evaluations, and how such use was justified.
