Transcription

Lewis Terman a psychologist from Stanford University created an American version of an IQ Test called the Stanford-Binet test. The Stanford-Binet test was the first to have national norms not just local ones, like the last ones we saw that was localized for Paris. The Stanford-Binet tests use the same IQ ratio as we talked about before. Mental age over chronological age times the average, which is 100. The test focused on three main domains, Verbal, language, Quantitative, math, and Spatial. One problem with the test, however, was that the questions they used were only for children and teenagers. So adult intelligence couldn't be measured. David Weschler solved this problem by creating a test of intelligence for adults, called the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale. This looked at the same domains as the Stanford-Binet test. This test asked questions that were more adult appropriate. For example, why the individuals buy automobile insurance, or in what ways are boats and trains the same. Modern versions also test working memory, with problems such as the examiner saying three numbers for example three, nine and seven. And then the person is asked to repeat them back, or eight numbers, eight, five, nine, seven, four, three, seven, two. And again, the person has to repeat these. The more numbers a person can recall the greater their working memory is.

Early life

Alfred Bennett was born in Dubuque, Iowa on June 10, 1854.[1] In 1865 he and his parents took the Oregon Trail to Oregon and settled in Washington County.[1] By 1870 Alfred set off on his own and eventually ended up in The Dalles, Oregon where he taught and learned the law between 1873 and 1880.[1] In 1880, he passed the bar, this was while serving as Wasco County superintendent of schools from 1878 until 1882.[1]

Judicial career

In September 1882 Alfred Bennett was appointed as judge of the 8th judicial district which covered Eastern Oregon and remained in that post for two years.[1] He then returned to private practice and married Mary McCauley in 1887.[1] In 1918 Bennett won election to the Oregon Supreme Court.[2] He replaced Conrad P. Olson who was serving out the remainder of Frank A. Moore's term after Moore died in office.[2] Alfred Bennett then resigned from the court on October 5, 1920.[2] He then resumed private practice in The Dalles before dying on November 28, 1925.[1]

While in private practice Bennett argued several cases in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. In 1896 Bennett represented Jane Skottowe in Oregon S. L. & U. N. R. Co. v. Skottowe in a personal injury lawsuit.[3] In 1912, he represented Hamilton H. Hendricks against the government on charges of perjury in Hendricks v. United States.[4]
