5 True/False Questions
Creativity → the ability to produce novel and valuable ideas
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale → a general intelligence factor that according to Spearman and others underlies specific mental abilities and is therefore measured by every task on an intelligence test.
Reliability → the extent to which a test yields consistent results, as assessed by the consistency of scores on two halves of the test, on alternate forms of the test, or on retesting
Intelligence Quotient → defined originally as the ratio of mental age (ma) to chronological age (ca) multiplied by 100 (thus, IQ = ma/ca × 100). On contemporary intelligence tests, the average performance for a given age is assigned a score of 100.
Predictive Validity → the extent to which a test samples the behavior that is of interest
