4. Dr. Randazza shows participants a stylized map of a fictitious city. The map includes landmarks, such
as a post office, a library, a shopping mall, a bus depot, and an airport. Some of the landmarks are close
together, such as the library and the post office. Others are far apart, such as the airport and the shopping
mall. Dr. Randazza removes the map. Participants are asked to imagine walking from one landmark to
another, either a nearby one or a more distant one. Participants press a key when they’ve reached the
destination in their minds. Based on your text’s discussion of mental imagery, what do you think Dr.
Randazza should find? What would such a result say about mental imagery?

 

A

landmarks. This result would suggest that mental imagery does not reflect the actual actions we perform
with respect to real objects.
C
.
Participants should take longer to travel mentally between distant than between close landmarks. This
result would suggest that mental imagery reflects the actual actions we perform with respect to real
objects.

Categories. Categories of objects, events, and people that are similar in some way are represented by concepts. Concepts enable us to respond
appropriately to stimuli in the environment and to identify novel objects. Some concepts, such as geometrical shapes and kinship terms, may be
represented by a unique set of properties or features (e.g., triangle—three sides, interior angles sum to 180 degrees). Most concepts are represented
by a best or most typical example, or prototype. An apple, for example, may be the prototypical fruit. Other objects are categorized as fruits to the
extent that they resemble an apple.
Objects. Objects are represented by mental images. Mental images are not only visual; they can be produced by any of our sensory systems. A
familiar example might be the experience of “hearing” a song in one’s head. Images retain many of the properties of the objects they represent; in
addition, we can often perform the same operations on images that we can on the real objects they represent. For example, it takes longer to scan
an image of a large object than it does to scan an image of a small object, just as it takes longer to scan an actual large object than a small one. We
can also rotate an object’s image in our mind, just as we can rotate objects in the physical world. Mental images have been used to enhance the
practice and performance of athletes and musicians.
The answer should contain the following points:
230. (p. 241) Students’ examples may vary.

Algorithm vs. heuristic. An algorithm is a rule that is guaranteed to produce a solution to a problem if it is applied correctly. An example might be
a formula in physics: If F = MA is appropriately applied to a particular word problem, the solution will result. A heuristic is a cognitive strategy
that may result in the solution to a problem, but it is not guaranteed to do so. Heuristics require less time, expertise, and cognitive effort to apply
than do algorithms. In addition, for certain problems, no algorithm may exist. An example of a heuristic is to assume that one can afford the
mortgage to a house if the house costs 2.5 times one’s salary or less; applying this rule is easier than calculating and projecting mortgages for
houses of different prices.
231. (p. 243-244) Students’ examples may vary.

It is a matter of opinion, though, as to whether mimicking someone else’s creativity is the same as being completely original on one’s own.
Computers can solve complex problems. For example, computer programs can evaluate potential chess moves and ignore unimportant
possibilities. Computers can also create new compositions in the style of such masters as Bach, complete with the full scope and emotional appeal
of actual Bach works.
The following text information is relevant to the answer:
232. (p. 245) Students’ answers may vary.

Well-defined vs. ill-defined problems. In well-defined problems, the nature of the problem is clear, as is the information needed to solve it. An
example might be an algebra word problem. In ill-defined problems, either or both the nature of the problem or the information needed to solve it
is unclear. Determining how to get along with a prickly supervisor may be one example.
The answer should contain the following elements:
233. (p. 246) Students’ examples may vary.

Working backward. The strategy involves focusing on the goal rather than the current state of the problem, then determining the action that would
most immediately produce the goal. A common example is looking up the answer to a mathematics problem, then figuring out the preceding steps.
Forming subgoals. This strategy involves dividing a problem into a series of intermediate steps, then solving those. A computer program
assignment might offer an example: one might code one section of the program, then another, and so on. A term paper might be divided into
separate introduction, body, conclusion, and reference assignments.
Means-ends analysis. Means-ends analysis involves repeatedly comparing the current state of the problem to the goal state and attempting to
reduce the difference between the two. In an art course, for example, one might have an idea of the piece one would like to create; one might try to
reduce the difference between the current piece and the desired one by shading here, adding a brush stroke there, smoothing this portion of the clay
a little, and so on.
234. (p. 249-251) The answer should mention the strategies described below. Examples may vary.

Creativity is only weakly associated with intelligence, probably because traditional intelligence tests are strongly centered on convergent, rather
than divergent, thinking problems.
Creativity—the ability to generate novel, yet appropriate solutions to problems. Creativity is associated with divergent thinking—considering
multiple, original answers to questions or solutions to problems. It is associated with a preference for cognitive complexity—a preference for
elaborate or intricate stimuli or thought patterns. Creative individuals often have wide-ranging interests and an interest in abstract or philosophical
problems. They tend to be independent and autonomous.
235. (p. 267-268) The answer should mention the following points:

Semantics: the external meaning of language. Taken together, the three sentences in the example allow the listener to construct a mental picture or
model of how the evening went; they take the listener into a meaningful world.
Syntax: rules to order words so that the appropriate meaning is communicated. For example, in the last sentence, “TV watched I” would not
convey the idea that it was I who watched the television set. Similarly, “Met pizza friends I two” would barely get across the idea of what
happened, if at all.
“I met two friends for pizza. We then went to the library for two hours to work on a homework assignment. After that, I watched TV for a while.”

Phonemes: speech sounds. The vowel sound in “I” and the beginning consonant in “met” are examples.
The answer should be similar to the following:
236. (p. 257-258) Students’ answers may vary.

Overgeneralization: Applying grammatical rules even when doing so results in an error. Example: “It costed one dollar.” Overgeneralization is
common among children 3-4 years of age.
Telegraphic speech: Brief sentence-like constructions which omit noncritical words. Example: “Mommy home.” Telegraphic speech is common
around age 2.
Babbling: Speech-like but meaningless sounds, such as “goo goo, ga, ga.” Children babble from about 3 months to approximately 1 year of age.
237. (p. 259) The answer should include definitions and examples similar to the following:

Nativist theory. Associated with Noam Chomsky, the nativist approach to language development suggests that humans have an innate capacity
to acquire language that unfolds as a result of biological maturation. All the world’s languages share a common underlying structure called a
universal grammar. The brain has a neural system called the language-acquisition device that allows us to acquire this universal grammar, as well
as develop strategies for learning our particular language. Neuroscientists have identified brain areas closely involved in language; in addition,
genes have been identified that contribute to language acquisition. Critics of the nativist approach suggest that the ability of nonhuman animals—
e.g., chimpanzees—to acquire language argues against such uniquely human constructs as a universal grammar and a language-acquisition device.
Learning-theory. By this account, language is acquired through reinforcement—parents shape their children’s successive approximations to adult
language. The more that parents speak to their children, the more proficient the children become in their native language. However, in reality,
adults reinforce incorrect language use by their children just as often as they reinforce correct use, calling into question the central role of shaping
in the theory.
238. (p. 259-260) The answer should include the following points:

In later adulthood, scores on measures of fluid intelligence often decline; by contrast, scores on measures of crystallized intelligence hold steady or
even increase.
Fluid intelligence: Fluid intelligence refers to an individual’s basic information processing, memory, and reasoning abilities. A sample fluid
intelligence task is a digit span test.
Crystallized intelligence: Crystallized intelligence refers to the accumulation of information, skills, and strategies that people have learned through
experience. A vocabulary test is an example of a test of crystallized intelligence.
239. (p. 267-268) The answer should contain the following points:

240. (p. 268-269) This theory proposes that there are at least eight distinct forms of intelligence: musical, bodily kinesthetic, logical, mathematical,
linguistic, spatial, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. There may exist even more types of intelligence, such as existential intelligence. The
types of intelligence are linked to relatively independent brain systems. Each individual possesses each type of intelligence to either a greater or
lesser extent; that is, an individual may have an intelligence “profile” across the eight types. While the types of intelligence may be associated with
different neural systems, most tasks involve the cooperation of multiple forms of intelligence: an architect’s work, for example, may involve both
spatial and mathematical intelligence.

With respect to educational practice, the answer should suggest that classroom activities and the assessment of learning might consider forms of
intelligence other than those that traditionally form the backbone of education—namely, logical, mathematical, linguistic and analytical forms of
intelligence. A greater focus on alternative forms of intelligence might allow a greater proportion of students to realize their true potential.
241. (p. 270-271) Sternberg proposes three forms of intelligence: analytical, the type of intelligence that drives the solution of the sorts of abstract
problems typically found on intelligence; practical, “street smarts”—the intelligence that underlies overall success in life; and creative, the
intelligence that drives the generation of novel ideas and products.

Practical and emotional intelligence are only weakly related to traditional academic intelligence, if at all.
Emotional intelligence—comprises a set of skills underlying the accurate assessment, evaluation, expression, and regulation of emotions.
Underlies the ability to get along with others; the basis of empathy, self-awareness, and social skills. Like practical intelligence, emotional
intelligence may be more strongly related than traditional academic intelligence to life success.
242. (p. 271-272) Practical intelligence—proposed by Sternberg; the sort of intelligence that underlies life and career success. It is developed
through the careful observation of others’ behavior.

Most cases of mental retardation reflect familial retardation. In these instances, there is no apparent biological deficit, but there is history of
retardation in the family.
Causes of mental retardation: There is an identifiable biological or environmental cause in nearly 1/3 of the cases of mental retardation. Among
the most common of these causes are fetal alcohol syndrome and Down syndrome. Fetal alcohol syndrome results from the mother’s use of alcohol
while pregnant. In the U.S., one in every 750 infants is born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Down syndrome occurs when an individual is born with
an extra copy of the 21
st
chromosome.
Profound: IQ below 25
Severe: IQ 25-39
Moderate: IQ 40-54
Mild: IQ 55-69
Levels of mental retardation:
243. (p. 278) The response should include the following points:

The results showed that from the beginning, the participants were more successful academically and professionally than were their nongifted peers.
More surprisingly, they were better adjusted socially than were their nongifted peers, contradicting the stereotype of the intellectually gifted as
social misfits. Terman’s participants also reported higher life satisfaction than did nongifted individuals.
Beginning in the 1920s, psychologist Lewis Terman began tracking 1,500 children with IQs of 140 or higher. The children were followed for the
rest of their lives.
244. (p. 279) The answer should include the following points:

—IQ tests are still not culture-fair; black respondents may be at an unfair disadvantage from the start when taking the test.
—In other societies, if an IQ gap exists, it is always the economically disadvantaged that come out on the bottom. In a society in which blacks
were an empowered majority and whites a disenfranchised minority, any IQ gap would favor the blacks.
—The environment of black individuals differs in many ways from that of whites, not just in SES; there may be many environmental factors, then,
that could explain an IQ gap.
—The IQ gap attenuates greatly when blacks are in white environments, such as when black children are adopted by white families, or when
blacks attend college.
—There is more variability within racial categories than between them, calling the relevance of the whole race-IQ debate into question. The focus
should be on individuals rather than groups.
245. (p. 279-280) —Although there may be a substantial genetic component to intelligence, racial categories are more socially constructed than
genetically based; twin data and so forth is thus irrelevant to the race-IQ debate
