  • Score On An Intelligence Test
    527 words
    'The score on an intelligence test does predict one's ability to handle school subjects, though it foretells little of success later in life. ' (Gardner) Intelligence by definition is the capacity to understand and apply knowledge. Honestly, how can that be tested? What happens if the test taker is sick or he / she is answering the questions stupidly for some odd reason? There is too much esteem behind this test; it should have no bearing other than a predicting tool. Not the scale that one must...
  • Existence Of Multiple Intelligences

  • Alpha And Beta Test Total

    The first mental tests designed to be used for mass, group testing were developed by psychologists for the U.S. Army in 1917-1918. The group tests were modeled after intelligence tests designed for individual use in one-on-one assessment. In developing the mental tests, the psychologists subscribed to the position that one could be quite intelligent, but illiterate or not proficient in the English language. Based on this reasoning, two major tests were developed, the Army Alpha for literate grou...

Their ability to perform well on standardized tests? Or just some arbitrary quantity...

  • Tests In The Term Intelligence Test

    INTELLIGENCE TESTS It's a sad but true fact that people are constantly being measured and tested everyday. This testing is not necessarily for themselves, but for others to rate and categorize the subjected. That person is then placed and stereotyped based on the result of a test. This is unfair. However, unfair as it may be, it is still a reality today that everyone encounters during their lifetime. The job market uses tests to see where people will fit in the most with what company. Colleges u...

    654 words
    Charles Huang Writing 50 5-650 April 16, 2001 The Seven Intelligences Society has taught us to see education and intelligence in a very black and white perspective.

Many aptitude tests such as the Student Aptitude Test or the Stanford Nine Test gear towards certain subjects to attempt to measure ones intelligence. But is there rea...

  • Beginning With The Standardized Test
    507 words
    The field of intelligence testing has been in development for nearly a century. As there appears to be no hard and fast definition of intelligence, individual researchers have focused on developing tests to measure various components of intelligence according to their own personal interests. One such example is "the Flynn Effect", James R. Flynn's discovery that "IQ scores increased from one generation to the next for all countries for which data existed" (Flynn, 1994). Beginning with the standa...
