Scope and Content Note

This series consists of materials used in the psychological testing of inmates at the Albion State Training School. The materials were used to determine the condition of inmates as required in the Correction Law and the Mental Hygiene Law. Examples of the testing material are as follows: mazes; picture arrangement and completion; arithmetic and other problem-solving tests; blank test sheets; Rorschach plates; and information on and instructions for tests (e.g. Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale). The series also includes minutes of a group therapy session and miscellaneous items such as guidebooks for new inmates; rules and duties for officers; and a file on in-service training courses.
