A Comparative Study of Multiple Intelligences of Students with Respect to Grades
The purpose of the paper is to study and compare the Multiple Intelligences of girls and boys studying in VII and IX grades. The nature of study was descriptive. Two stage sampling was used to select sample. The sample of the study constitutes 4577 students in which 2010 were from grade VII and 2567 students from grade IX. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to find the significant difference in the multiple Intelligences of students with respect to grades. The findings shows that there is a significant difference in the multiple Intelligences of grade VII and IX students. The mean scores indicate that IX grade students were found to be high on Bodily Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Musical, Naturalistic and Existential Intelligence than VII grade students. The inter-correlation between different types of Intelligence was calculated with respect to grades. It was found that the coefficient of correlation between different types of Multiple Intelligences were high in case of grade VII students in comparison to grade IX students. Profile Analysis was used to derive an inference about the level of multiple intelligences of students with respect to grades. The findings showed that IX grade students i.e. girls and boys were found to be high on all types of Intelligences than VII grade students i.e. girls and boys. Suggestions and implication of the study were discussed.
