Multiple Intelligences Evaluation

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D


Q: I am a preschool teacher in Virginia. We have currently been discussing Multiple Intelligences and how my principal would like grade levels to have students take the MI evaluation. Is there any form of the MI evaluation directed at lower age levels (4 to 6 years)?

A: I personally do not know of a standardized Multiple Intelligences evaluation for young children. However there are a few sites that offer simple tests to gauge the multiple intelligences (MI) that younger children may have.

What your preschool can do is to get a team to set the questions based on the various MI search done on the internet. Then decide on the items. You may want to get some professional assistance here in determining the items that are suitable. This would not be a standardized test and should only be taken as a rough indicator to gauge children's' areas of strengths and weaknesses. Then, the school can modify the curriculum to suit the needs to these children by having enriching activities to enhance their strength areas and helping them with the weaker areas.

You may want to refer to the following web sites for some guidance on constructing the items.
