Limitations of intelligence tests l.jpg

Limitations of intelligence tests

  • The appraisal of intelligence is limited by the fact that it cannot be measured directly

  • Intelligence tests sample intellectual capabilities that relate to classroom achievement better than they relate to anything else

  • Intelligence test scores can be improved with systematic instruction

  • Anything that enhances classroom performance will likely have a positive effect on intelligence test performance

Reflectivity versus impulsivity l.jpg

Reflectivity versus Impulsivity

  • Reflectivity

    • In a problem solving situation, the student prefers to spend more time collecting information and analyzing its relevance to the solution before offering a response

  • Impulsivity

    • In a problem solving situation, the student responds quickly with little collection or analysis of information

Field dependence versus field independence l.jpg

Field-Dependence versus Field-Independence

  • Field-Dependence

    • A person’s perception of and thinking about a task or problem are strongly influenced by such contextual factors as additional information and other people’s behavior

  • Field-Independence

    • A person’s perception of and thinking about a task or problem are influenced more by the person’s knowledge base than by the presence of additional information or other people’s behavior
