Jake Venditto 2/1/10 Chow AP Psychology Chapter 9 – Learning and Psychological Testing Learning Objectives 5. Galton coined the phrase nature versus natures to refer to the heredity – environment issue. Along the way he also invented the concepts of correlation and percentile test scores. Although Galton’s mental tests were a failure, his work created an interest in the measurement of mental ability, setting the stage for a subsequent breakthrough by Alfred Binet. Binet and his colleague Theodore sime expressed a child’s score in terms of their mental age, which indicates that he or she displayed the mental ability typical of a child of that chronological(actual age) 6. Lewis Terman worked and altered Binit’s model. He derived the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) which is a child’s mental age divided by chronological age multiplied by 100. The ratio of mental age to chronological age made it possible to compare children of different ages.

    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.
