PSY 450 Week 3 – Individual Intelligence Testing Article Analysis


Use the Electronic Reserve Readings (ERR) for this course, the University Library, or other resources to locate at least 4 articles concerning these issues. Please use research articles with authors and websites that meet the UOP criteria for websites (official versus non-official – if you have doubts, please ask).


Use your selected articles to prepare a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you address the following items:




Analyze at least two theories of intelligence related to the content of your selected articles.

Evaluate the effectiveness of intelligence testing.





Discussion Questions:




1-What are the three key developmental domains? Which one of the domains do you feel is the most important? Why? 


2-I would like each of us to share which of the domains might explain your developmental progress along the years? Please remember the criteria for initial posts.


The concept of normalcy. Please remember to make a connection with the readings in your initial post.


As discussed in your Week Three readings, abnormal behavior cannot be defined without considering the continuum between normality and abnormality. However, it is difficult to draw the line between what is normal and what is abnormal. One of the things that blurs the line is the media. How has television, including reality television shows, sitcoms, dramatic presentations, and news reporting, impacted our concept of normalcy? Mainly focus on the seemingly abnormal behaviors listed in the chapter and those that in your experience seem alike (i.e. – has TV skewed our view of depression, schizophrenia, eating disorders?)  Use Ch 8, 9, and supplemental readings – these are important.
