A critical comparative analysis of current emotional intelligence models: towards a generic model and related assessment methodology

This critical comparative study set out to examine existing research in the Emotional Intelligrnce (EI) field, drawing on research from psychology, sociology, medicine, industry, education, and neuroscience, in particular, to explore whether empirical research can point towards a new, generic, model that can serve all these sectors and more. To be successful it will also need a related assessment methodology that can withstand the major arguments within the extant research.

The primary questions central to the research are:

  1. Can a generic framework of abilities be developed that can be widely accepted as a reliable measure of emotional intelligence (EQ) in the same way that general intelligence is measured (IQ)?
  2. To what extent can a single assessment methodology reliably assess adults against such a model?
Are UK universities committed to information literacy?

Information literacy is defined by the Chartered Institute of Librarians and Information Professionals as: “Knowing when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner.
