Terman, the Stanford–Binet, and the Birth of the Testing Industry No single American was more important in the birth of the intelligence testing industry than Lewis M. Terman. Terman developed the most successful American version of the Binet–Simon Scales, but he was also responsible for training Arthur Otis and bringing Otis’s group intelligence methodology to the committee responsible for developing the Army mental tests.

Maud Merrill assumed most responsibility for the third revision, creating the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale, Form L-M (Terman & Merrill, 1960), in which she merged the two alternate forms by selecting the most discriminating items from the 1937 versions. With Maud Merrill’s retirement, Robert L. Thorndike was selected to head up a renorming study of the Stanford–Binet Form L-M in 1972. A fourth edition was later published (Thorndike, Hagen, & Sattler, 1986), and, very recently, a fifth edition has appeared (Roid, 2003; see Roid & Pomplun, Chapter 15, this volume).
