Please help me get started with the following:

Select two assessments of intelligence and two achievement tests. *DO NOT USE AN APTITUDE TEST* Analyze the four instruments:

1. Compare and contrast several major definitions of intelligence.

2. Describe the 4 instruments. Which intelligence theories are closest to the 4 instruments chosen? Explain how they are related. How are they similar to different theories of intelligence?

3. For the two intelligence tests, explain:

a. how they are reliable (or not); examine more than one type of reliability

b. how they are valid (or not); examine more than one type of validity

c. explain how your tests were normed

d. explain how your tests are biased (note: there is always some bias)

4. How are the goals of the intelligence tests different from the goals of the achievement tests? How are the intelligence tests used differently than the achievement tests?
What are the different purposes of these tests? Assume that they are used for different things.

5. Discuss the ethical considerations in using intelligence tests in education. Discuss the ethical considerations in using achievement tests in education.
