Cou 6360: Measurement & Assessment CONFERENCE #5 Q1. There are a number of Theories of Intelligence. Describe the following 3: a) Spearman's Two-Factor Theory: Intellectual abilities are comprised of two factors, namely; the general ability known as G-factor and specific Abilities known as S-factors. The performance by the individual is determined by the G-factor and the S-factors. The total intelligence of the individual is the sum total of the G-factor and the S-factors. The performance of a particular task depends on the ‘G’ factor or general ability and the particular ‘S’ factor or specific ability. b) Thurstone's Multifactor Theory: He rejected the General theory of intelligence and instead presented his own theory. This theory states that the human intelligence includes 7 primary mental abilities. Though these abilities appear to be different, they are related to each other. He believed intelligence is not a single factor like general intelligence rather it is a combination of multiple factors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
