Summary "The Maze test has now been in use for almost twenty years. During that time it has been widely applied and considerable study has been devoted to its results. The reports of this work are, however, scattered through various publications, so that a comprehensive view of this accumulated experience is hardly possible. Yet at this time, when the instruments of mental diagnosis are being carefully scrutinized, such an inclusive survey is most desirable. Taking the opportunity afforded by a revision of the tests and their scoring and methods of application, I have gathered together in this volume a summary of all important studies in which the Maze test has been used. I have also included herewith some discussion of the nature of intelligence, mental deficiency, methods of mental diagnosis and racial differences, since these are the problems upon which the test results appear to have most bearing"--Preface.
