In this article, the writer notes that intelligence tests have long been a part of the educational landscape. The writer points out that many tests have been used to determine intelligence and scholastic aptitude in elementary schools, middle grade schools, and in high schools. Some question does exist over the value of these tests in terms of validity and reliability, particularly in certain populations. This paper examines some of the issues that exist with the use of intelligence testing in the educational field.
From the Paper:"The use of psychoeducational assessment in students with SLD can be problematic. Intelligence testing is often not the answer, particularly in some cases in which intelligence is not an issue in terms of the special learning needs. However, there is some indication that scholastic assessment and intelligence testing can be linked. If a reliable association between the two forms of testing can be found, this implication could have some potential streamlining effect on the future of assessing students with SLD. Although some research has been done in linking the two processes using the SAT and the ASVAB, further research would need to be done at the elementary and middle grades level."
