Assessing Multiple Intelligences.
Martin, William C.
This paper explains Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) and discusses questions raised about MI theory in regard to validity, assessment, and implications for instructional activities. MI theory asserts that human cognitive competence is best described in terms of a set of abilities, talents, and mental skills that each child develops at different rates based on biological and cultural influences. These "intelligences" include music, bodily-kinesthetic, logical-mathematical, linguistic, spatial, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligences. The paper addresses the development of a curriculum to accommodate or modify one or more intelligences and the assessment of MI. (Contains 33 references.) (MDM)
