Semester 2 Work

UNIT SEVEN: Am I More Than a Test Score?
Intelligence Project
Intelligence Magazine

Overall in this unit it was a slow start to the beginning of semester two and made me panic as soon as we got the intelligence project. With me being gone a lot this semester so far due to sickness, it really pressed me and my group member Joey. Overall our project ended up being done very well. From the tech view I really did not have many problems as I am pretty well rounded in photoshop and InDesign. The one thing that ended up stumping me was that we made our template for our magazine in photoshop and we had to find the right resolution to match the InDesign resolution to look the same. While looking at the english portion and the rubric I believe that we nailed most of the rubric pretty well but I think we really excelled in organization. Our magazine wasn't too squished together like many others and it flowed together and had related yet unique formats on every page. The part on the rubric where I struggled most was having the text wrap around five or more images. We really didn't realize this until the end so we wrapped all the required items and then had to reformat which was very time consuming. The main question for Psychology is “Am I more than a test score?”. Which brings me to the conclusion that not many kids are not more than a test score. All people really look at is what score they get and how they compare to other people. While working me and my partner had no real problems. We did fight over our format and how many things looked but overall there were no real problems and we used our time wisely and finished on time. Lastly in statistics I was able to apply the empirical rule when talking about the distribution of scores on Stanford-Binet's IQ test. The distribution is what showed the amount of students in relation to averages scores that decided whether or not someone was a genius, average, or intellectually impared. I learned that this test was a start to dividing students into groups for a better learning style, but in the end I will never think someone's general smarts can be tested within a test. I did not face any difficulties in this portion of the project, because I had my partner who had accomplished the statistics piece right after we learned how to calculate distributions.
