Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! IF you have any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer. ++++++++++++

I believe that the best intelligence-testing instrument available to psychologists today is still the Sternberg Triarchic Abilities Test (STAT) of Robert J. Sternberg (Benson, 2003). This test ascertains intelligence in multiple aspects and the exam is multiple choice which is easy to handle by children with varying intelligences. Moreover, initial testing of the STAT revealed that it has less ethnic bias, which solves one of the problems identified for other widely used intelligence testing integuments (Benson, 2003).  

Nevertheless, I wish that this test includes more aspects of intelligence aside from analytic, practical, and creative aspects. This change will help psychologists and parents on how best to nurture the intelligence of a child.
