This book consists of a collection of twelve arti cles bearing upon the causes of success and failure in the teaching of the so-called essential branches in the elementary schools. The essays, which were based on tests extended to a large number of chil dren attending schools in various parts of our coun try, were published at intervals in The Forum. Although the total number of pupils examined was not far from I did not utilize the work of more than some for strictly scientific pur poses. Upon the other papers, I did considerable labor as well, but I decided to discard them be cause the investigation was interrupted for a time through pressure of work after I had become the editor of the magazine, and I thought it advisable to begin anew with fresh material when its con version into a quarterly gave me the required leisure to resume it. Moreover, I also felt that I could safely dispense with the older papers, as I was satisfied before publishing the later articles that the sufficed to furnish all the data needed to answer the purpose for which the tests had been intended.
