Application in Multiple Intelligences: Research in Alternative Assessment.
This paper introduces a theoretical treatment of the concept of intelligence that provides for intellectual diversity and contrasts this view with the more traditional notion of intelligence. Next, the paper draws from this theory several implications for education, paying particular attention to the question of assessment. It is shown why this view of intelligence forces the rethinking of some of the fundamental assumptions held about the assessment of learning. To conclude, a consideration of several specific implications for bilingual and multicultural learning are drawn from a discussion of multiple intelligences. Responses to the paper by Vera John-Steiner and Sue Teele are appended. (VWL)
