Your Child May Be Brighter than His 1. Q. Score Shows If you think your child is brighter than his I.Q. score shows, the man to talli to is Dr. Henry S. Dyer, vice president of the organization which prepares many of the standardized tests used in American schools and colleges, the Education Testing Service in Princeton, N.J. Surprisingly enough, Dr. Dyer is on your side. At least he will give you the benefit of the doubt. "Tests," he says, "are not infallible." He will even agree that they are sometirfaes erratic, up one day and down the next, and that there are many individual talents and traits—such as creativity and ambition—that they do not measure at all. Combination Best As a consequence, Dr. Dyer attaches at least as much importance to your estimate of your child's potential, based upon long experience, as he does to a teacher's or psychologist's, based only upon test performance. A combination of the two—personal evaluation and impersonal testing— is so far, he believes, an unbeatable formula for predicting what kind of mark your child will make in school and Judifh Simmons Becomes Bride of J. A. LaBrasca Atonement Luth eran Church was the setting for the 6 p.m. candlelight ceremony Dec. 23 in which Judith C. Simmons, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. I. T. Simmons of 2021 DeKoven Ave. became the bride of Jerome A. La­ Brasca, son of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Banker of 2918 La- Saile St. The Rev. Jerome Miller officiated. A reception was held afterward in the church Fellowship Hall. The former Miss Simmons, given in marriage by her father, worse a floor length gown of taffeta, fashioned with a scoop neckline detailed with Venise lace and sequins. The full skirt was designed with a butterfly bustle and had front panels accented with jeweled lace. A crown of crystals and pearls held her French illusion veil and she carried a cascade of white carnations and red garnet roses. Preceding her were Karen Danielson, maid of honor, and Carolyn Danielson, bridesmaid. They wore red velveteen dresses with flared skirts and three-quarter fitted sleeves trimmed with white lace. Matching red headpieces with circular veils and colonial bouquets of red and white carnations completed their ensembles. Sonna Simmons, sister of the bride, served as junior bridesmaid, wearing red velveteen and carrying a white later on in a career. Colleges that use both in selecting students for admission have been able to reduce their academic failures to about two per cent. Dr. Dyer says. This compares with colleges in general with an academic failure rate of about 50 per cent. Questioned in connection with the publication of an article—"Let's Look Again at Those LQ. Tests"—in the December Reader's Digest, Dr. or captain a football team. They were never intended to do these things."

Tom Szuhai, cousin of the' bridegroom, was' groomsman. to the writer's contention that, because standardized tests are fallible, they should be abolished. Use Tests "The problem is not one of doing away with tests," he explains, "but getting people to use them intelligently, and creatively, as well as cautiously." Although tests are fallible they are not nearly so much so as a teacher's grades which. Dr. Dyer believes, may reflect not only her mood of the moment but her opinion of the child, his acadeniic history, the color of his skin, his social habits, and the way he is dressed. "Ordinarily," Dr. Dyer says,! "a good intelligence test, running for an hour or perhaps two hours, is 40 per cent more| accurate than teacher's grades for purposes of assessing a student's basic skills." Cause of Confusion A common cause of confu- and Edisons, both notoriously poor students, he doubts very much that students of this type are uniformly poor- scorers. In fact, he feels that tests have often helped teachers to "discover" students whose ability was not apparent in their academic work. "If you have ever been in the company of a group of students who were top-notch scorers on intelligence tests, I think you have found that they are not the docile type, that they are not just the glibe type, that many of them are deeply reflective thinkers. Records Help Child to Form Music Tastes URBANA — Children's records help to form lifelong musical tastes while at the same time amusing the child, according to Robert B. Smith, music specialist with the child development division at the University of Illinois. "Sing along" records provide important early musical experience. Other records forj the two- to eight-year-old child are the "rhythm" and: "listening" types. ! To check suitability, try to' listen to the record before you have it wrapped. Choose records that encourage sing-; ing or rhythmic participation.' The singing record.s that appeal to children have a natural, fresh quality. • Avoid "sing along" records; that feature choral groups singing in harmony. They are too complicated for young; children to hear the melody, j Pick the tunes you'd like your children to hear years from now as well as this sea-' son. Some American folk songs, for example, will live forever. If you can't listen before' you buy. look for the names of key performers.
