Rick, Andrew and Co-learners,

How exciting to run into someone who actually follows Sternberg's (see
post below) work. I cite him often, and love his theory and index,
because, as these things go, his allows me to define my off the map
heirarchical and equally off the map anarchical self in one wonderful
paradoxical bundle. So thanks Andrew for moving Rick to mention him.

Stated differently, Sternberg's Triarchic Abilities index shows promise as
a tool that approaches a broader scope of learning measurement, testing
not just analytical ability, but creative and practical competencies as
well. I also appreciate his particular cognition-centered approach as
being dynamic and environmentally interactive rather then static or fixed,
and his distinctions between type, style, traits and situational states of
being. Here are a few more articles to add to your list:

Sternberg, R. (1996). What should we ask about intelligence? American
Scholar. Spring, 65, 2, 205-17.
Sternberg, R.J. & Grigorenko, E. L. (1997). Styles of thinking,
abilities, and academic performance. Exceptional Children, 63, 3. 295

Sternberg, R.J. & Grigorenko, E. L. (1997). Are cognitive styles still
in style? American Psychologist 52, 7. 700-12.

Sternberg, R.J. & Williams, W.M. (1997). Does the graduate record
examination predict meaningful success in graduate training for
psychologists?. American Psychology. June, 52, 6. 630-41.
