From the Paper:

"Multiple Intelligence theory as developed by H. Gardner has always been a controversial issue. The seven intelligences, outlined by Gardner do not reflect traditional learning theories that assert that intelligence can be based upon one's ability to score well on a single test, like the Intelligence Quotient test, that has been used for decades to help determine the ability of a child to learn in a classroom setting. Gardner's theory on the other hand has been in existence since the early 1980s, growing in strength and number of applications since."
