Review progress 1/3/12 Reading material indicates that the concepts are defined however the use of the labels is still unclear to me. Why EQ and not EI? When should they be applied? What is the connection to IQ? Reflection 4/3/12 Conversation with colleague clarifies the use of the acronyms EQ Emotional Quotient is the measure of the emotional intelligence refers to work of Baron Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i), is a selfreport measure of EI developed as a measure of emotionally and socially competent behavior that provides an estimate of one's emotional and social intelligence Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups. EI is the defined concept by Mayer and Salovey Perceiving, reasoning, understanding and managing emotions Followed by the work of Golman facilitated the use of the concept in the wider community An intelligence quotient, or IQ, is a score derived from one of several different standardized tests designed to assess intelligence. I feel in a position to provide a clearer description of the use of the terms in the area of emotional intelligence Introduce this into next class for discussion and clarification with my expectation being that this will enhance the students understanding 7/3/12 Reviewed the content on IQ and EQ at the beginning of class, I felt confident in the delivery of the information and received some affirmation from the class that this clarification was helpful. I feel it was a useful exercise introducing the review of content using the portfolio structure as it achieved two objectives, one specially related to the content and the other demonstrating the use of the portfolio.
