Write a 5-page section of a request for proposal (RFP) in which you evaluate an intelligence quotient (IQ) test, analyze a case study on intelligence testing, and address the application of biological psychology to various professions.
In Assessments 14, you completed four parts of a request for proposal (RFP) from a nearby school district that is seeking individuals or groups to design a training and professional development in-service day about the brain and mind from a biopsychological perspective for their educators. In addition to providing professional development in-service for educators, the school administrators have also asked you to prepare an evaluation of intelligence testing and the value of introducing biological psychology to educators, social workers, and other professions.
