Appendix EXAMINATION BOOKLET The examiner was furnished with a booklet in which he entered the re- sults of his examination. The booklet was designed on the basis of a draft code, so that his entries might have the desired specificity and he might have the responsibility for making the proper choice of alternative classifications. At the right of each page the examiner was given a generous blank space in which to write explanatory notes clarifying his entries, etc. Only after all the booklets had been received and edited by both authors could the booklet be amended to constitute a technically adequate code for punch- card use. Such amendments may be exemplified as follows: (/) a single- choice classification is changed to a multiple-choice one; (2) an additional combination of findings is recognized in the classification; (3) a central review (e.g., EEG) requires a new classification of its own; (4) a classifica- tion is extended to include findings not originally recognized, and (5) a center makes some additional type of observation that requires its own classification. As used, the booklet for the follow-up examination extended to 47 pages and has seemed too detailed for reproduction here except in outline form. As in appendix 2, therefore, the outline specifies every item of information obtained but provides none of the detail of the classification of information applied to each item. However, many of the more important classifications appear in the tables throughout the text. Outline of Booklet for Follow-up Examination I. Identification A. Center and type of roster B.
