ntelligence and designing an equitable test
Goal:
To define and describe the association between intelligence and mindsets, and provide recommendations for designing an equitable test.
Instructions:
We are now far enough in the course where you should easily be able to relate prior concepts to what we are currently learning. In this discussion, please relate material from previous modules to this module:
Please take the “Genius test”. (Links to an external site.)What type(s) of intelligence do you feel the test was trying to capture (you must use terminology from the textbook to receive credit)? Note: this exercise is to get you to become familiar with intelligence testing and should not be taken to heart. If any feelings arise from taking the test please email me.
How was your experience taking the test? Please discuss whether you thought the test was easy or difficult and why, if there were any concepts you didn’t understand (and provide examples) and how you felt when you received your score
How does the work on mindsets relate to intelligence testing? How does it relate to learning and motivation?
After reading about the different theories of intelligence and cultural differences in intelligence testing, how do you think intelligence should be measured? Provide at least two recommendations based on research for designing a more equitable, culturally sensitive intelligence test.
Submission
Please submit your responses using the provided text box (preferred method) or submitting a word document or pdf.
Example submission that received full credit:
1. What type(s) of intelligence do you feel the test was trying to capture (you must use terminology from the textbook to receive credit)?
I was not able to answer all the questions on the test, therefore my answer to this question may vary or not if I had finished the 50 questions on the test. However, from the few questions that I was able to respond to, I personally think that the main intelligence being tested here was analytical intelligence which is based on academic problem solving and computation. The reason I say this is because a lot of the questions were mainly mathematical-like. For example, questions where we had to find how many times Casey had to go to the loading dock with his 23 boxes, which really was mainly division and rounding, when having to add odd numbers and figuring out whether they gave an even/odd number, finding out if the 3 numbers on a given list gave the result of 44 and so on. However, there were some analytical questions like the two friends walking certain distances and trying to figure out how far apart they were, if there were 53 letters on a sentence, who was the tallest between Terry, Madelyn and Bernice, and how the QQRRQQQQRQR is to RQQRRQRQRR, these questions where more about analyzing the information we were given and finding a solution.
2. How was your experience taking the test? Please discuss whether you thought the test was easy or difficult and why, if there were any concepts you didn’t understand (and provide examples) and how you felt when you received your score
There were some questions that were difficult for me like the one about the two friends walking a certain distance, one about the art and a cup (which I still have no idea), and the one about being 13th in line because I wasn’t sure whether to add the person mentioned or not. I am definitely not someone who can solve math problems easily or fast with just using my brain, I need pencil and paper to visualize what I’m doing and solve things better. When I saw that there were 50 questions and 12 minutes to respond I immediately knew I wasn’t going to finish them all under 12 minutes, due to past experiences with exams when there was a huge number of questions against time. I was able to answer 17 questions, technically 18 but I didn’t send it on time, and my result was 28%. In past experiences I have noticed that I struggle with analysis, and it takes me more time than others to analyze something, which is why it’s something I try to work on when I can. Even though my score wasn’t in the average or high scores, I was still surprised I did 28%, before taking the test I didn’t even think I was going to score near 20%.
3. How does the work on mindsets relate to intelligence testing? How does it relate to learning and motivation?
There are two different types of mindsets in terms of learning, the growth mindset and the fixed mindset. People who have fixed mindsets are more likely to think that they get their result from a test because that’s their limit and therefore can’t do better. Obviously, this can become a problem for people with this type of mindset and could affect their ability to learn and their own motivation (even self-esteem). Someone with a fixed mind will struggle learning because they strictly believe they can’t improve because of their “level” or because they don’t have a certain talent. Therefore, they believe that if they were to try and learn something (and experience trial and error learning or other methods of learning) it would be useless because they wouldn’t be able to progress due to their limitation in either (or both) intelligence and skills. If such a person were to have this kind of mindset, their motivation to do other things (besides the things they can do) is most likely going to be low over time. The reason is because they believe that they can’t improve and have limitations, they’ll be hard on themselves and may even be frustrated with themselves because they may not be as good as others in other areas. On the other hand, this may be different for people with a growth mindset, these are the type of people who believe that they aren’t born with limitations for many things, this helps them to feel more motivated in trying out new things even if they don’t succeed in them. These are the type of people who believe consistency, practice and hard effort can help them become better in various subject areas and skills. Due to this mindset, learning is something that they’ll be positive about because they are aware that learning will help them have more knowledge on doing something and help them get to where they want.
4. After reading about the different theories of intelligence and cultural differences in intelligence testing, how do you think intelligence should be measured? Provide at least two recommendations based on research for designing a more equitable, culturally sensitive intelligence test.
Intelligence Quotient tests seem more to be based on analytical intelligence and on both crystallized and fluid intelligence. A lot of problems that many of us face today, especially when given an assignment at school, tend to be more based on analysis. Analysis is something crucial since it can be applied to the other two intelligences from the triarchic theory. Usually when we face a problem, we analyze the situation (or problem) and then try to figure out a solution (or multiple solutions). Therefore, as for now I think that Alfred Binet’s intelligence measure method is fine as of now with Louis Terman’s modifications (The Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale). However, does this mean that the rest of the other people who can be intelligent in one or multiple from the 8 intelligences theory aren’t intelligent? No, the reason is because someone who is intelligent is someone who has the ability to understand something (knowledge/skills) and apply what they’ve learned when possible/necessary. Therefore, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory should be applicable in measurement. I think that the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale (s) are another good method of testing intelligence since it involves testing in verbal comprehension, visual spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory and processing speed. Having good scores on these subtests may reflect that a person may be intelligent because they are able to gain information and solve it in various ways (through listening, visualizing it, etc.). Due to some differences in culture, it’s important that one takes a test with the culture/language they may have more knowledge on, or somewhere where the environment is more equal friendly. I think that the fact that tests are always analyzed to see any biases is what matters because it leads to the creation of better improved tests for everyone.

SYNTHESIS PAPER ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
You will demonstrate your use of current APA skills that you honed during the APA
Assignment and the Case Study Assignment, and all the content you studied throughout all
this course. Current APA format needs to be demonstrated in all aspects of this Synthesis
Paper Assignment. Proper APA formatting is required as part of the content of this
Synthesis Paper Assignment.
INSTRUCTIONS
The purposes of this Synthesis Paper Assignment are to:
● Demonstrate proper use of current APA format in a term paper.
● Demonstrate proper use of one of the research methods studied in this course—
specifically, the case study.
● Reflect on what you have learned in this course and write about it.
● Reflect on the course content as critiqued from a biblical, Christian perspective and write
about it.
● Note: Thinking and reflecting on what you have learned will take a considerable amount
of time. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for this Synthesis Paper Assignment.
Using a case study report approach, write 4 – 8 pages of a research-based report using yourself as
the research subject by answering these three assigned research questions:
● What have you learned about research at an introductory level?
● How do you evaluate or critique this from a biblical, Christian perspective?
● Describe the process you, the researcher, went through with this Synthesis Paper
Assignment, gathering information, deciding what to include, and so on.
Create an appropriate heading for each of these questions.Do not copy the questions above to
use as the wording for your headings. These three questions above are deliberately not written as
level one headings in current APA formatting the way they appear above, however, a good way
to organize your document would be to use these three ideas as appropriately written level one
headings.Add additional levels of headings as appropriate throughout the document to organize
your content.
Your paper must include a properly formatted title page for a student paper, four to eight pages
of content with correct current APA formatting throughout, including proper citations and levels
of headings, and a reference page. The title page and references page are in addition to the
assigned four to eight pages of content. Maintain consistency between your citations and
reference page. Your paper must include at least four references to sufficiently support your
paper. Required references include your Introduction to Research textbook and the Publication
Manual, and at least two additional scholarly references. You may also include additional
content-related sources you would like to include that are part of what you learned in this course
this term. Remember, use current APA format and paper elements for a student paper throughout
(including your title page, appropriate vocabulary and sentence structure, introductory statement,
in-text citations, page numbers, levels of headings throughout the document, a conclusion
statement, and consistency between your in-text citations and references).
In addition to the scholarly sources described above, you may use your Discussion posts and
additional personal reflection. However, remember that you are writing a case study report; you
are not merely writing personal reflections as such.Your answer will be unlike anyone else’s,
and that is what is expected. Be sure to consult your Publication Manual for proper formatting
for your in-text citations and references for these other sources.
Think about what you have learned, reflect, synthesize, and write that synthesized reflection into
a case study report about you.Do not simply copy and paste together various previous
assignments from our course and combine those to create this document.
Note:This Synthesis Paper Assignment is open-book/open-notes, open-Bible, open to
discussion with friends, etc. Be sure to document your sources appropriately as in-text citations
and as references when you use the textbook or other material from this course, personal
interviews with friends, etc. This Synthesis Paper Assignment requires that you incorporate proper current APA formatting throughout the document. Formatting errors will result in point deductions.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

Exercise during pregnancy.

Here is an example of a journal article report as it should be done. You must follow this format when
you write the paper. APA 7

Title: Maternal exercise during pregnancy ameliorates the postnatal neuronal impairments induced by
prenatal restraint stress in mice.
Journal: International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience
APA style citation: Bustamante, C., Henríquez, R., Medina, F., Reinoso, C., Vargas, R. & Pascual, R.
(2013). Maternal exercise during pregnancy ameliorates the postnatal neuronal impairments induced by
prenatal restraint stress in mice. International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, 31, 267–273.
Institutional affiliation of first author: Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile
a) There is substantial empirical evidence that maternal stress during pregnancy has negative effects
on offspring in both human and nonhuman animals. These negative effects include such
psychological attributes as hyperactivity and anxiety in the offspring. Presumably, these
behavioral consequences are the results of unhealthy patterns of brain development relative to
the offspring of females who do not undergo prenatal stress. In young rats that undergo stressful
weaning procedures, pyramidal neurons in the parietal lobes show morphological changes, but
we do not yet know if prenatal exposure to stress has the same effect on neuronal morphology as postnatal stress. Based on the data from postnatal studies, the authors predicted that pyramidal
cells would be affected by prenatal stress. Specifically, they expected to find alternations in
dendritic growth in prenatally stressed mice. The authors were also interested in maternal
exercise during pregnancy. A good deal of research shows that maternal exercise is beneficial to
the fetus in terms of a variety of cognitive skills (e.g., memory, learning) later in life. Therefore,
the authors predicted that the offspring of mothers who exercise during their pregnancies would
be protected somewhat from the negative effects of maternal prenatal stress on brain
development (the dendritic spine measures noted above) and later emotional behavior, as
measured by reactions of the subjects in open field tests.
b) The subjects were mice whose mothers had been placed in one of four conditions: control (no
stressors) (C), restraint stress (RS), and restraint stress with access to voluntary wheel running
RS+VWR). Restraint consisted of placing the pregnant females in plastic cylinders for 45
minutes three times a day from gestational day 14 until delivery. The RS+VWR group had free
access to a wheel in their home cage. Five offspring from mothers in each of the three groups
were used as subjects. On postnatal day 23 these subjects were tested in the open field test (a test
of anxiety). Soon thereafter the subjects were sacrificed and their brains were examined for
morphological changes in the dendritic growth of parietal pyramidal cells.
c) The pyramidal neurons of the offspring whose mothers had been subjected to restraint when
pregnant were shorter and had fewer branches than those of the control mice. However, these
changes were significantly less pronounced in the RS+VWR mice. Furthermore, the mice in the
RS+VWR groups showed no deficits in the open field test compared to the control mice.
However, the RS offspring also did not show more open field deficits than the C offspring. The
treatment groups did not differ in gestation length, litter size, or pup weight before they were
weaned, and the pregnant dams did not differ in maternal weight gain.
d) The results indicate that, as predicted, the mice whose mothers were subjected to recurrent
restraint stress during pregnancy showed abnormalities in the microstructure of neurons in the
parietal areas of their brains. This is consistent with what is known about the effects of postnatal
stress on the development of these same neurons. The authors suggest that the damage done to
fetal neurons may be related to high levels of glucocorticoids such as cortisol that are secreted by
the stressed dam and reach the developing nervous system of her fetuses. High levels of these
hormones are potentially toxic to brain cells because, among other things, they perturb glucose metabolism and prolong calcium influx into neurons as a result of delayed glutamate reuptake.
One way that exercise may buffer the fetal brain from these effects is by increasing blood vessel
density and thereby protecting the fetus from hypoxia that is associated with maternal
vasoconstriction during periods of stress. The absence of an effect of prenatal stress on emotional
behavior in this study might be explained by methodological differences across experiments.
