  1. What defines Intelligence?

  2. Cognitive Revolution

  3. Thinking and Problem Solving • Left-brain vs. Right Brain… • Appropriate limits of the problem • Develop strategies • Evaluate outcomes • Restructure outcomes in the future

  4. Expertise • Age vs. Life experiences • A combination of both is highly necessary!! • Subjective vs. Objective… • Is deciding of something is a “good” or “bad” life experience entirely up to US?

  5. Measuring Intelligence • Reliability – consistency of results over time • Validity – does the assessment/study accurately focus or reflect on your purpose? • Construct Validity – TOOLS used • Predictive Validity – compare to REAL life • Internal Validity – compare variables within • External Validity – compare to results outside of the study; to another study. • How does this affect intelligence testing for children or adolescents?

  6. Limitations to Intelligence Testing: Validity and Reliability • Sample population • Demographic • Size • Familiarity of the acceptable language within that community • Parents and other influences • Test setting

  7. Limitations to Intelligence Testing: Validity and Reliability • Individual test performance vs. overall (population) performance • Item Analysis (Test Questions) • Formatting • Time • Difficulty • Errors and questions of little value • Using examples that test taker can relate to

  8. Standardization • Scoring is the same for every application of that assessment. • Administration is the same of the exam for every application of that assessment.

  9. Mental age – your ability in comparison to others; performance age • Chronological age – actual age in number of years

  10. Intelligence: Normal Distribution
