The Truth About Intelligence and Achievement Tests: What They Measure and What They Should Measure

Preview clip

Dr. Naglieri will provide a close examination of what IQ tests and assessments measure and what they should measure.  He will discuss the history of IQ testing and show that IQ tests are built on outdated concepts. Dr. Naglieri argues that traditional IQ tests are really achievement tests in disguise and that a rethinking of what intelligence is must take brain function into consideration. Solutions and options based on research will be discussed.
