For more course tutorials visit www.uophelp.com Addressing Bias in Intelligence Testing. Daniel, an eight-year-old child from a poor, inner-city neighborhood, is given a traditional IQ test. One section of the IQ test involves defining various words. “Yacht” is one of the words that Daniel is asked to define. Briefly discuss why the test administrator should be cautious when interpreting Daniel’s performance on this test. How does the triarchic theory potentially counter this bias? Develop and share three questions, one for each component of the triarchic theory (analytic, creative, and practical), that would provide a more accurate representation of Daniel’s intelligence.
