8 1. Charles Spearman believed: A) intelligence could not be measured by only one IQ score. B) IQ alone can not predict success in life. C) the g factor describes general, overall intelligence. D) personality is more important than IQ in measuring success. 432

9 2. Howard Gardner believes that intelligence must be defined: A) by a single factor, called g. B) within the context of a particular culture. C) in terms of Verbal, Performance and Full Scale IQ’s. D) in terms of multiple factors. 433

10 3. Some people, mostly males with autism, have extremely limited abilities; yet, they have a specific ability far beyond the capabilities of the average person. They have: A) mental retardation. B) the g factor. C) inherited genius. D) savant syndrome. E) Asperger’s syndrome 433

11 4. Robert Sternberg describes three intelligences, including all of the following, except: A) Analytical. B) Mathematical. C) Creative. D) Practical. 435

12 5.The statistical procedure which identifies clusters of related items that seem to tap a common ability is called: A) factor analysis. B) context validity. C) reliability assessment. D) correlation measurement. E) standardization 432

13 6. Being able to respond appropriately when interacting with others suggests: A) multiple intelligences. B) street smarts. C) emotional intelligence. D) creative intelligence. E) practical intelligence 436

14 7. Studies of creative people suggest five components of creativity, including the personality described as: A) adventuresome personality. B) detail oriented. C) extrinsically motivated. D) introverted. E) concrete thinker 439

15 8. Studies show that intelligent people differ in their brain’s ability to adapt and grow to the environment, called: A) synaptic development. B) neural plasticity. C) developmental process. D) inherited potential. E) reify intelligence 440

16 9. Creative people have a desire to come up with new ideas as the result of: A) getting paid for it. B) being pressured to perform. C) extrinsic motivation. D) intrinsic motivation. E) social-cultural determinism 439

17 10. In considering the impact of general intelligence on success: A) measured IQ is correlated with obtaining academic success. B) emotional IQ is correlated with being successful in one’s career. C) measured IQ is correlated with obtaining a good job. D) all of the above. 437

18 11. Originally, IQ was determined by calculating: A) the average score on Binet’s test. B) mental age / chronological age X 100. C) the total score on Binet’s test. D) chronological age X mental age / 100. 444

19 12. Lewis Terman made changes to an earlier test, established new norms and published it as the first American intelligence test, called the: A) Binet Intelligence Test. B) Wechsler Intelligence Scales. C) Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test. D) Alpha-Beta Test of Intelligence. E) Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children 443

20 13. Today’s IQ is different from the original in that: A) it is no longer calculated with a formula. B) it is based on the average performance for each age group. C) it is no longer an “intelligence quotient”. D) all of the above. 444

21 14. When you took your driver’s test, you were taking a type of test called a(n): A) achievement test. B) aptitude test. C) skill test. D) self-study test. 444

22 15. The Wechsler Scales have the important advantage over the Stanford-Binet in that the WAIS offers: A) a more accurate measure of g. B) several scores other than the general IQ. C) easier administration. D) a more reliable instrument. 445

23 16. A subject will be administered the WAIS or the WISC, depending on: A) whether or not the subject can read. B) the primary language of the subject. C) the age of the subject. D) the training of the administrator. 445

24 17. Standardized tests such as the WAIS follow a bell-shaped pattern of scores called the: A) average distribution. B) normal curve. C) bell scatter. D) normative spread. 447

25 18. Because the WAIS and WISC are standardized, 68% of the IQ scores achieved on them are between: A) 95 to 105. B) 90 to 110. C) 85 to 115. D) 80 to 120. 447

26 19. When a measurement yields the same results each time it is used, it has a high: A) reliability. B) validity. C) correlation. D) respectability. 448

27 20. Mental Retardation is defined by difficulty living independently, and an IQ of: A) less than 100. B) 70 or less. C) 85 or less. D) 60 or less. 452
