Summary "At a time when the human resources of the country were taxed to the uttermost, the War Department, to meet the problem of placement of its skilled personnel, undertook extensive researches. One of the important outgrowths of this experimentation was the Trade Test. This instrument was devised and constructed to make it possible for a trained examiner, unskilled in any particular trade, to measure in objective terms the trade standing of any recruit claiming skill in any of the several hundred trades necessary to the work of the Army. The success of this work, undertaken by the Committee on Classification of Personnel, was largely due to the whole-hearted cooperation given by a large number of industrial plants, in the three centers where the Army Trade Test Division was established. If the principles of army trade test construction are adapted to the needs of the industrial plant, many of the problems of selection, placement and training of skilled personnel will be more easily solved"--Preface.
