Test on Tuesday (as the class calendar indicates: PP is on line at http://ponderosatcchs.wikispaces.com/ ( or http://ponderosatcchs.wikispaces.com/Home+Page) and has been posted there for quite some time) Your reading and what is covered in class will be applicable to the test. The following are some points to remember. 50 MC. Remember there are only 97 days till the AP Psychology exam (this includes weekends and breaks...actually less in class time) We must continue to move forward. Intelligence Tests used by psychologists to measure mental ___________________and __________________ them with others. Mental ability learned from __________________ Aptitude Tests predict ____________________________________new skills Ability to be a __________________would be an example of an aptitude test. __________________ __________________ Achievement Tests Assess the learned __________________ or __________________ current __________________ Standardized Tests Test performance can be __________________with that of a representative __________________ group Compared to the __________________ test-taker g-factor developed by __________________ General intelligence that underlies ____________________________________on a wide variety of tasks General intelligence factor are most highly correlated with their __________________ to __________________ __________________ problems. Binet (and Stanford Binet) Had to find out how children perform in __________________ Had to determine the ____________________________________for the child's intellectual development (being fast or slow) __________________= IQ (formula) WAIS (Weschlers) Test Subtests of __________________ and __________________ questions Most widely used One __________________from the mean contains scores from 85 to 115 The one ____________________________________from the mean contains __________________ of the population Intelligence Test Scores Form the pattern of a __________________shape Known as the ____________________________________ __________________ Curve Validity ____________________________________is the extent to which a test samples the __________________ that is of interest. If a teacher gives you a test on intelligence but it contains very little questions on intelligence it would be questioned on its content validity. A lifesaving course samples the tasks that a lifeguard would routinely face (like pool drowning) etc. Then it fits __________________ validity. Reliability __________________results every time it is used. For example: you take the SAT and your score doesn't dramatically increase or decrease each time you take it. Flynn Effect the increase in ______________________________________________________world wide Could be due to __________________and __________________ improvements Factor Analysis identify __________________ of closely related test __________________. Savant Syndrome __________________concepts too difficult to understand Mentally __________________ Show __________________ abilities (Whiz at something-Math, music, art, facts- sometimes reading ) Show characteristics that make the __________________ of Intelligence much more complex and __________________ to many distinct abilities. Mental Retardation limited mental ability, indicated by an intelligence score of __________________or below difficulty in adapting to the __________________of __________________ IQ varies from __________________to __________________ Down Syndrome condition of retardation and associated ____________________ ________________ caused by an ______________ ______________________ in one’s genetic makeup Creativity ability to produce __________________and __________________ ideas requires __________________ motivation Styles of Thinking: __________________- multiple answer to problems __________________- one answer to problem- required for successful performance on intelligence tests The Brain Damage to the __________________ __________________ __________________damages convergent thinking __________________correlates positively with intelligence Perceptual Information __________________ of taking in perceptual information is correlated with __________________ Emotional Intelligence Being able to __________________, __________________ , __________________, and use emotions __________________ pleasures in pursuit of long range rewards losing your __________________illustrates a low emotional intelligence Has been criticized as a concept because it is overly __________________ and is stretched over a broad range of __________________ Heredity and Genetics Used __________________/ __________________ __________________studies to show the variation Heredity can be the influence when comparing __________________ twins raised separately and still having __________________ IQ scores, where __________________raised together have __________________similar scores. Groupings and Bias Widening of achievement gap between higher and lower ability groups has been caused by such programs as "__________________" programs. ___________________ _________________- debunked (classical music) __________________ __________________ __________________- bring down the # of participants that will repeat grades or require special education __________________ are superior in __________________ __________________ are better at __________________ and __________________ (exposure to __________________ sex __________________ parentally fosters the development of spatial abilities.) Greatest gap between aptitude scores of black and white individuals occurs as __________________ __________________juniors, but the gap closes by the __________________ year of __________________. If American colleges only admitted students on the basis of their SAT, WAIS, Stanford-Binet a disproportionately larger # of __________________would be admitted than __________________.
