My intentions are good...be patient with me. As per the therapy advocated in one of my favorite Bill Murray movies ("What about Bob?"), this endeavor will be in the form of "baby steps." :)
The idea of this blog is to provide a up-to-date bridge between intelligence theory and the applied practice of intelligence testing.
First, conflict(s) of interest need to be divulged. I, Kevin McGrew, have a commercial interest in the Woodcock-Johnson Battery--Third Edition (see www.iapsych.com for more information), a battery that includes both cognitive (intelligence) and achievement components.
However, my primary interest is in the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) Theory of Human Cognitive Abilities and how it can be measured with stand-alone batteries (e.g., WJ III; SB5; K-ABC II) or with CHC-designed Cross-Battery methods. To get up-to-speed you are encouraged to read CHC Theory: Past, Present and Future (click to visit and read).The goal is to focus primarily on the CHC theory as the center from which all types of CHC assessments emerge.
Stay tuned. I make no promises. This one post may be it. We shall see.
