First I would like for you and your group members to take 2 emotional intelligence tests. The first assessment (the MSCEIT) is an ability model of emotional intelligence and the second assessment is a mixed model (the EQ-i). The username and a passwords to take both are below. After taking the assessments, I would like for you to decide which EI assessment do you believe best measures the theoretical framework of emotional intelligence. Please explain why you chose the model (instead of the other). (Mayer, Salovey and Caruso, 2004a, p197). According to it’s authors the MSCIET is a “is  highly reliable at the total-score,area and branch levels and provides a reasonably valid measure  of EI in the many senses of the psychometric sense of the word valid” (Mayer, Salovey and  Caruso, 2004a, p. 211).This quote suggests the complex issues surrounding assessing reliability  of tests. They argue that their model of EI is a unitary ability which represents a new type of  intelligence, it meets three criteria required for standard intelligence- it can be operationalised to  have more or less correct answers, specific pattern of correlations to known intelligences, and that EI should develop with age. The MSCIET has been shown to have overall reliability of.91 to .93,  with area and branch reliability of between .76 to .91 (Mayer, Salovey andCaruso, 2004a),  Alternatively to the MSCEIT and ability frameworks, trait approaches as developed by Reuven  Bar-On review a “cross-section of emotional and social competencies that impact intelligent  behaviour” (Bar-On, 2002, p 115). Bar-On coined the term emotional quotient (EQ) and further  defines EI terms of extensive traits connected to managing environmental constraints in a way to  promote social wellbeing..Ciarrochi and Mayer (2007) offer some novel and innovative

    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.
