It may be added that in 1947, the Educational Psychology Division of the American Psychological Association appointed a committee to define and delimit the scope of Educational Psychology.

The following five areas were named:

  • Human growth and development: Including the effects of heredity and environment on various aspects of the individual.
  • Learning: The nature of the learning process, factors influencing the learning process etc.
  • Personality and adjustment: It included many sub-topics such as mental health of the students and the teacher’s character.
