That is to say, being smart is not equal to having and using only one type of intelligence, but having all types of intelligences which include practical, social and emotional intelligences as well as using them effectively. On the other hand, the definition of human intelligence may not be a simple one as it cannot be confined to one’s responses to numerical and verbal tasks in IQ tests. Human intelligence is beyond IQ tests as Phil Yam points out. Human intelligence is the combination of various skills and abilities that would work even in real-life conditions. People’s life success and practical knowledge are also determining factors while measuring their intelligence because they need to possess survival skills when they encounter stressful and challenging situations.
CASE FOUR:MEASUREMENT AND VALIDATION | 1. In Table 3.1, the traditional selection model shows a high p-value of 0.26 for education being citizenship and absence. The correlation score is 0.01, which means that education has little to no impact on the correlation between education and citizenship and absence. The interview score also has a p-value of 0.26, so this means that the interview score also does not relate to the correlation between performance and the interview. If the company is going to use the traditional selection model, it would do best by seeking out the lowest p-value with a high correlation score.
Tanglewood case Four The traditional selection methods of Tanglewood includes such as education, work experience, and interview score. For education, it had 0.03 correlation and less than 0.01 p-value at citizenship, so we can say education had a statistically significant low correlation with citizenship. It also had a significant low correlation with performance, promotion potential and didn’t have statistically significant because the P- values was 0.03 above the standard 0.01. For work experience, because it had correlation was 0.17 around 0.1 at citizenship, so it was a moderate correlation with a significant. Work experience also had statistically significant moderate correlation with absence, performance and promotion potential.
Although both have something to offer neither can claim full victory over truth. It is a delicate balance of the holistic and the sectional concepts that constitute the whole brain affect in cognitive psychology (Gutierrez & Ormsby, 2010). One of the earliest concepts of cognitive concepts was found in the science of phrenology. Phrenology stated that there were specific areas of the brain that directly related to personality traits and cognitive ability. This concept although well intentioned and closer to the truth than originally thought failed to stand up to the
For instance, how will a standardized test determine the creativity of the child? How will a certain score prove that the child is good at one subject and bad in another? Just on the basis of a score, is it logical to assume that a student is not capable of shining in a certain course? Often, a fixed syllabus is circulated in schools and colleges and the teachers stick to a monotonous method of just completing the syllabus and teaching only the required topics. This can definitely hinder an in-depth learning of the subject by the students.Standardized testing are a type of exam that assess the student's capability on the basis of multiple choice questions.
But, this does very little in protecting you against some other guys writing a spreadsheet which is more user friendly, calculates faster, and provides more functions, even though you were the inventor of the spreadsheet. There are only so many general purpose software programs. The rest of computer software is specialized, developed for a particular purpose, to solve a specific problem. These specific software solutions may rely on the general purpose solutions, but refine them. By refining them they become specific applications targeting a specific set of users with a specific set of problems.
Intelligence David Joo 8-5-12 BEH 225 What is the true meaning of intelligence compared to what most may think? Intelligence is the ability to learn something and adapt to different things. Some people may think that is stupid if they don’t know about certain things when that isn’t how intelligence is measured. People who have never been taught about something in some way probably don’t know about it. The real way to measure intelligence is to teach someone something and them pick it up and understand it without being taught most people won’t know much about it.
Summary In his essay “Hidden Intellectualism” Gerald Graff argues that there are different forms intellectualism, not just the traditional academic intellectualism. Graff argues that these hidden forms of intellectualism are not expressed in what is considered the correct scholarly way, but rather they are “hidden” in our everyday conversations about sports, fashion, pop-stars, etc. Graff feels that as a child you can gain just as much from arguing over non-academic material than you could from debates on academic issues. He supports this by saying that arguing of minimal things requires just as much intellectual ability as debating over more theoretical issues. Graff goes on to further state that because of this every street-smart student has the possibility of being an intellectual.
I think that a paper and pencil test should be used to test a candidates basic math, reading and chemistry skills and any other basic skills essential to doing the job, but not as the primary way of promoting people to position of leadership. I think the promotion should be based on a persons ability to perform his or her job. Basically I think that there should be other criteria taken into account for a promotion. In the case of Frank Ricci, he was fortunate enough to be able to afford the expenses of preparing for the examination, a person less fortunate is liable to not do as well on the test, a test that doesn’t test leadership. I think that the government should have different methods on finding out who’s qualified for certain leadership positions.
Other types of research are qualitative and quantitative research. In the qualitative research concepts are assigned a numerical value, and in the quantitative research concepts are based on ideas or terms that improve our understanding. The language of research is like a foreign language, most people do not understand it called researchese. To the people who do not understand the language of research is research shock. An individual new to research will not have a problem learning the research language.
