The Institutional Adjustment of Ten Boys Committed to Lincoln Hall Lincolndale, New York in 1954
Background of the Study. For a long time, it was taken for fact that mental defect was a principal cause of juvenile delinquency. At the present time, however, it is apparent that intellectual deficiency is not one of the chief characteristics of delinquency. An intensive survey conducted by Sheldon and Eleanor Glueck indicated the average intelligent quotient of five hundred delinquents to be 92.2. In this investigation, the Gluecks made use of the Wechsler-Bellevue intelligence test which divides general intelligence into verbal and performance . The verbal tests include vocabulary, general Information, general comprehension, arithmetical reasoning, memory span for digits and similarities test. The tests which determine the performance score are picture arrangement, block design, picture completion, object assembly and digit symbol.
