INTELLIGENCE TESTS AND EDUCATIONALLY-RELEVANT MEASUREMENTS.
BARRITT, LOREN S.
THE RELEVANCE OF INTELLIGENCE TESTS FOR EDUCATIONAL USES IS CHALLENGED ON TWO GROUNDS--(1) TESTS WHICH MERELY PREDICT THE LIKELIHOOD OF FUTURE SUCCESS DO NOT PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO PRESCRIBE TREATMENTS TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE, AND (2) INTELLIGENCE IS NOT DEFINED AND HENCE THE INTERPRETATION OF SCORES IS MISLEADING. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT EDUCATIONALLY-RELEVANT TESTS MUST BE BASED UPON EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES FOR VALIDATION. THE SKILLS TO BE TESTED MUST BE DEFINED AND REPORTED CLEARLY. THE MUTUAL BENEFITS OF SUCH REVISED PROCEDURES FOR PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION ARE SUGGESTED. THIS REPORT IS INCLUDED IN "STUDIES IN LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR," PROGRESS REPORT 5, SEPTEMBER 1, 1967. (AUTHOR)
