When examining WW2 personnel service records you may come across results of what's labelled Revised Examination "M", as seen below.
I've uncovered some details regarding this test which was used as part of the personnel selection process for WW2 in Canada.
The Revised Examination "M" was made up of eight short subtests, no one knows if the M stood for mental or McGill University. The first three were non-language, picture association tests designed to be understood regardless of the soldier's degree of literacy. Parts four and five related to common tools and were said to measure mechanical aptitude. The last three offered conventional arithmetic, vocabulary and word relationship questions.
The mean results for WW2 for the Revised Examination "M" were 42, 43 and 54.
If anyone comes across a copy of the test, by all means post it.
