From this week’s unit, we learned about a variety of theories of intelligence. These theories of intelligence include Spearman’s two-factory theory, Luria’s information processing approach, Cattell-Horn’s two factor theory, Cattel-Horn and Carroll’s CHC model, and Carroll’s three-stratum theory. Exploring into these different models have helped me gain a better understandingof how each theory relies on another theory, in order to make tests better. Charles Spearman’s two factor theory of intelligence enhances the concept of the general intelligence ability factor, which is known as (g). In this intelligence theory, g is representing the portion of the variance that all intelligence tests have in common and the remaining portions of the variance being accounted for, either by specific components (s), or by error components € of this general factor (Cohen & Swerdlik, 2018). therefore, when there is a large (g) correlation, thisis a representation of general intelligence. Spearman’s intelligence theory states that the higher the value of g, the higher the overall intelligence of the test (Cohen & Swerdlik, 2018).Raymond Cattell displayed two noteworthy kinds of cognitive abilities known as crystallized andfluid intelligence. Crystallized intelligence (Gc) is comprise of abilities, for example, learning
