Shortcomings of IQ
I will provide a brief survey of the racist and eugenic history of the IQ scale. Students will discuss its merits and benefits, then we will explore new ways to "quantify" intelligence and what even intelligence or if such quantification is even possible. Examples of alternative scales are EQ or creativity scales. We will perhaps delve into personality tests as well. A potential deliverable could be students designing questions for their own improved scale.
For every session, there must be at least 2 participants for the session to occur, otherwise it will be automatically cancelled. Additionally, students must sign up at least 6 hours before the session begins.
