Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Critique or enhance their discussion of I.Q. and multiple intelligences testing by providing example(s) to make your point. Please respond to at least two of your classmates. Be sure to respond to any queries or comments posted by your instructor.
I did not score as highly on the IQ test as I would have imagined. However, it did not bother me or make me feel incompetent. I still believe I am intelligent; of course in my own way. The other test I believe correctly pegged me and gave insight on ways to boost those intelligences. A lot of the questions for the IQ test dealt with math, designs and word problems. Those things have never been my strengths. Furthermore, I spent a lot of time trying to answer questions that I was unsure of, so I was unable to answer all the questions. Looking back, I believe I would have moved on from the questions I did not know and after reviewing all the questions go back and answer the questions I was unsure of.
As stated in our text, IQ tests cannot test successful intelligence. People who have successful intelligence have the ability to adapt to their environments. Furthermore, they capitalize on their strengths and try to find a solution for their weaknesses. These people tend to be successful people, hence the reason I believe IQ tests may not be an accurate measure of intelligence.
I do not think that IQ testing has any value in a school setting. I believe that it could encourage biases towards children. An IQ test cannot tell a teacher whether or not the child has the ability to learn or how the child learns. Those things are only found when the teacher and child interact. I do believe testing is necessary when trying to find what level a child may be on, such as finding out whether or not a child is efficient with the knowledge at their grade level.
