- a a statistical procedure that identifies clusters of related items (called factors) on a test; used to identify different dimensions of performance that underlie one's total score
- b a self-confirming concern that one will be evaluated based on a negative stereotype
- c 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
- d a condition in which a person otherwise limited in mental ability has an exceptional specific skill, such as in computation or drawing
- e is the most widely used intelligence test; contains verbal and performance (nonverbal) subtests.
5 Multiple choice questions
- the behavior that a test is designed to predict
- 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.
- a test designed to assess what a person has learned
- the extent to which a test measures or predicts what it is supposed to
- defining meaningful scores by comparison with the performance of a pretested standardization group
5 True/False questions
Mental Retardation → a measure of intelligence test performance devised by Binet; the chronological age that most typically corresponds to a given level of performance
Creativity → the ability to produce novel and valuable ideas
Stanford-Binet → defining meaningful scores by comparison with the performance of a pretested standardization group
Intelligence → a method for assessing an individual's mental aptitudes and comparing them with those of others, using numerical scores
General intelligence → 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.
