theories of intelligence
Create a brochure for a local elementary school. Consider your audience, as this information would likely be distributed during meetings where a child might have received an intelligence test. Your brochure would be given to parents, guardians, and others to help them better understand the purpose of intelligence testing.
Include the following in your brochure:
- Provide a brief overview of at least two theories of intelligence related to the content of your selected articles to help your audience understand what intelligence testing accomplishes. (e.g. Multiple intelligence theory, Sternberg’s theory, psychometric theory, G factor, etc.)
- Discuss methods of measuring intellectual functioning. (e.g. WISC, Standford Binet, etc)
- Discuss how the concept of intelligence is different than academic achievement.
