9780826106292: IQ Testing 101

While the use of intelligence tests is widespread, they are not without controversy. IQ supporters see IQ measures as valid predictors of academic success, capable of proving real differences in intellectual abilities and influencing educational policy. IQ critics such as Robert Sternberg and Howard Gardner believe that IQ is a limited measure of intelligence and that a truer picture should incorporate more cultural and contextual factors.Alan Kaufman, a fellow of four divisions of the American Psychological Association, is a centrist in this debate. As a protege of David Wechsler, Kaufman is a firmer believer in the goal of IQ tests, but believes that the system of IQ testing needs serious improvements. This provocative and controversial book tracks both sides of this ongoing debate. Kaufman provides a historical overview of IQ testing, and approaches both sides of the debate with critical questions, including: how do heredity and our cultural environment influence our intelligence; how does aging affect intelligence; are IQ tests irrelevant for Learning Disability Assessment; what will IQ tests be like in 2030.

L'autore:

Alan S. Kaufman, PhD, is Clinical Professor of Psychology at the Yale University School of Medicine, Child Study Center. Kaufman earned an AB degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1965; an MA in Educational Psychology from Columbia University in 1967; and a PhD from Columbia University in 1970 (under Robert L. Thorndike in Psychology: Measurement, Research, and Evaluation). While Assistant Director at The Psychological Corporation from 1968 to 1974, Kaufman worked closely with David Wechsler on the revision of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) and supervised the standardization of the revised version-the WISC-R. He also collaborated with Dorothea Mc- Carthy in the development and standardization of the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities. From the mid-1970s to the present, Kaufman has held several university positions prior to his current professorship at Yale, most notably at the University of Georgia (1974-1979) and the University of Alabama (1984-1995). Kaufman's texts, including Intelligent Testing With the WISC-R (1979), Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence (1990), and Intelligent Testing With the WISC-III (1994), have been widely used for the interpretation of Wechsler's scales for children, adolescents, and adults. In 2009 he coauthored Essentials of WAIS-IV Assessment (with Liz Lichtenberger) and the second edition of Essentials of WISC-IV Assessment (with Dawn Flanagan). Kaufman's tests, developed with his wife Nadeen-most notably the 1983 Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) and its 2004 revision (KABC-II)- have been widely used throughout the world to measure children's intelligence. Kaufman is a Fellow of four divisions of the American Psychological Association (APA) and of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) and is a recipient of the Mensa Education and Research Foundation Award for Excellence (1989)
