Re-Establishing concurrent validity & reliability of ‘Multiple intelligence level-scale’ to assess dominant thinking pattern


Shruti Marwaha, Geetika Seth Nanda, Ekta, Navneet Singh

Students can learn better if they are imparted education in the way meant for them. There is growing evidence of the existence of a cognitive style, encompassing many areas of human performance that depends on the differential use of the capabilities of the two cerebral hemispheres. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity. The present research was conducted to re-confirm and re-establish the concurrent validity and reliability of the Dominant Thinking Pattern as assessed through the standardized Multiple Intelligence Level Scale (MILS) purely based on the Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences. The research was conducted in and around Chandigarh. The sample consisted of 120 school going students between 7-16 years of age from different schools. Random sampling was followed. It was established through results that the Scale is valid and reliable measure to find out the dominant thinking pattern of the subjects.
