CONSTRUCT VALIDATING THEORY SUCCESSFUL INTELLIGENCE THROUHG CONVERGING

This article describes attempts to construct-validate the theory of successful intelligence. It describes four distinct converging operations that have been used in these attempts. Two sets involve internal validation of the structure of the theory and two sets external validation of the theory with outside criteria. The internal-validation operations involve information-processing (componential) analyses and both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. The external-validation operations involve correlational analyses and analyses of instructional interventions based on the theory. The results are generally supportive of the theory and suggest that conventional conceptions of intelligence may be too narrow
