Notes on tests - 8/2/00

I want to test mathematical attainment against divergent ability.

Asking gender will make results useful for the next module (Gender in Mathematics)

Ask if testees would like to help in future. (Paul M. - how did he word this?)

Measures

Hudson tests bias.

Possible tests (From Guilford) divergent tests - 15mins each

Timing tests - tests on separate papers with table numbers.

IQ tests
