Concepts of intelligence

  • “According to Johnny, deer’s are witnessed on spring, with the first day of holiday being the hunting season. Further, his connotation of animals to certain seasons is depicted on his relation of ducks to summer, falls to squirrels and rabbits for winter.”) That would a hypothesis you could easily test out by doing a little research. Below I’ve copied the season dates for deer, duck, rabbit, and squirrel in Johnny’s region and they do not line up with the summer, autumn, winter, spring seasons.

    And, as I’m sure you noted, when he was asked the question again, Johnny actually came up with four additional hunting seasons (turkey, bear, quail and coon). So, let’s consider the concepts of intelligence and achievement. Johnny’s life experience has taught him that the most important way to categorize seasons is based on hunting seasons. By being able to list at least eight hunting seasons, Johnny has demonstrated the ability to learn this type of general information. Thus, do you think the test item about the four seasons is really a measure of intelligence (capacity to learn) or a measure of achievement (what has been learned)? If the test item is not measuring what it purports to measure, what does this say about construct validity?
