This study dealswith the psychometric properties and derivation of norms for an Arabic versionof the Multiple Intelligence Development Assessment Scale for AdolescentsTEEN-MIDAS. The standardization sample consisted of 637 students 317 males,320 females ranging from 14 - 16 years in age. Factor analysis and one-wayANOVA reveal a good construct, factorial, and discriminatory validity. The Cronbach-a formula was used to estimate internalconsistency coefficients. Split half and test-retest procedures were also usedto establish reliability coefficients. All the results indicate acceptablereliability for the TEEN-MIDAS. The intelligence scores were distributednormally in terms of the age range. And the deviation for the intelligencesdegrees and percentiles were calculated for each group of the sample. Finally,results indicated no statistical difference at = 0.05 among males and females students in the total scale, eventhough the musical and spatial intelligences were found higher among femalesthan males and natural intelligence higher among males than females. Overall,the TEEN-MIDAS appears to have acceptable psychometric characteristics allowingfor its use in decision making about career classification and selection.
