Intellectual Assessment is designed to provide an in-depth overview of the theories, research, and practice of assessing the intellectual abilities of children and adults. To that end, students are expected to acquire the skills necessary to accurately administer, score, interpret, and report the findings from commonly used intelligence tests. An overview of academic assessment is provided since a comparison of ability and achievement is often desirable. The limitations of these instruments as well as social justice and ethical issues related to intelligence and achievement testing will also be addressed. 3 credits
