Select and take any 3 online, or informal, intelligence tests. The point
is NOT to criticize the tests, because they are all free, informal tests. The point
is to think about how different tests might define intelligence. 2. Responses
can address any of the following questions, but students MUST USE AT LEAST
THREE VOCABULARY WORDS FROM THE TEXT.
What do you think is different about how the tests measure
intelligence? Did any of these test
measure intelligence more or less effectively and why? Do you feel that different types of
intelligence would be more successful at metacognition and metamemory? Phonics
vs. whole language? Do students use
all of the different aspects of intelligence equally or do they need different
abilities for different tasks? As always, try to remember that personal insight
is important, but there also needs to be factual examples and empirical data
relating to developmental concepts in your chapter to earn full credit. Some of
these tests are pretty entertaining, so try to remember that they are just to
illustrate how differently we define intelligence as a society.
