Write a 5-page section of a request for proposal (RFP) in which you evaluate an intelligence quotient (IQ) test, analyze a case study on intelligence testing, and address the application of biological psychology to various professions.
XII. Intelligence Test Evaluation
Conduct an Internet search to locate an IQ test. You wish to use the intelligence quiz on the Mensa website. Complete the IQ test. During the test, have pen and paper ready to jot down notes and observations about the test.
Prepare an analysis report about the IQ test that you completed. Respond to the following points:
Do you think the test was a fair assessment of intelligence?
Which questions do you feel most accurately gauged intelligence?
Which did you find bothersome? What did you learn about yourself from the test?
What factors might confuse the definition of intelligence? Could intelligence tests be biased? Explain.
XIII. Case Study Debrief
Locate a case study about intelligence testing and summarize the selected case study.
Use this case study to analyze the following:
What is the relationship between environment and intelligence?
What does this case study tell you about intelligence testing, interpreting test results, et cetera?
Discuss how test results can be influenced by the ability of the individual taking the test.
XIV. Practical Applications
What are the practical applications of biological psychology?
How can biological psychology be applied in the following professions? Social worker. Educator. Administrator. Counselor. Manager.
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community.
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER
If you were going to design your own IQ test, what types of questions would you place on it?
What would you have someone do? Are any of the tasks culturally biased?
If so, how would different cultural groups respond to the questions?
Since what is considered a skill and talent can be very culturally and perceptually based, does it stand to reason that intelligence is the same?
How can the biases and perceptions of the test’s creator influence the outcome of the test?
Does this influence our society as a whole since intelligence tests are a determining factor in what is considered intelligent?
