Many contemporary issues in educational psychology become clearer when set against the perspective of their historical antecedents. Originally published in 1969, this book provides a survey of the most important ideas and experiments in educational psychology at the time, showing how they have helped to shape our understanding of the factors that influence child life and growth. Dr Evans discusses the subject under four broad headings: Child Development; Theories of Personality Formation; The Psychology of Learning; and Mental Testing and Measurement. The book provided a valuable introduction to educational psychology for education students at the time, and will now be of historical interest to those involved in educational psychology.
