Videos to help with Intelligence, Motivation, and Emotion

You have sat through, listened and discussed this unit with Mr. Duez. But, wouldn't it be nice to hear about these topics from another perspective. Mrs. Amanda Rice has some tremendously effective video lessons out on Youtube. Here is a list of some you could use to help you with this chapter.

I have been producing some of these myself, but they aren't totally ready for this unit yet. I will be doing them this week over Development, Personality, and Stress because we won't have as much time to cover those topics in class. We only have 28 days until the AP test - so we have to use every advantage we can muster.

- In the past 60 years according to D. Flynn intelligence scores are steadily rising (Flynn Effect)
- Why does this occur? (improved medical, technological, and educational opportunities)
- But if Intelligence scores have been increasing, why then is the normal (mean) score still 100.
- Reliability - split half reliability, different test reliability, test-retest reliability
- Validity - the test measures or predicts what it is intended to ~ content & predictive
- Is Intelligence fixed or does it change over time?
