WICS: A New Model for School Psychology
Sternberg, Robert J.
School Psychology International, v31 n6 p599-616 Dec 2010
This article presents a unified model for cognitive processing, WICS, which is an acronym for wisdom, intelligence, and creativity, synthesized. The model can be applied to identification/admissions, diagnosis, instruction, and assessment. I discuss why there is a need for such a model. Then I describe traditional models, after which I describe the WICS model. The article attempts to show how the WICS model can be applied to admissions/identification as well as to instruction and assessment.
