Intelligence vs. Cognitive competencies
There are lines of argumentation between intelligence and cognitive competencies.
The first line of difference
Under normal and general intelligence tests, decontextualization takes place not depending upon quality. But, in cognitive competencies, quality of the constructed test is much more important than any other trait.
The second line of difference
The result of constructive cognitive competencies in terms of domain-specific competence tests is much more empirical, multi-dimensional and large-scaled.
The third line of difference
Educational effectiveness in constructive competency is high than general intelligence.
The fourth line of difference
The two different parameters measure the rate of success differently. Cognitive competencies predict academic success more technically than general intelligence.
