Was that the part about the racial differences? I could go and find it, but am too lazy.
Well, maybe I will... now that you have gotten me curious.
update: Found it, and yes it is the part about racial differences. Thanks for the input on this, Gerry. I kinda wondered about that part. I'm looking forward to any other comments.
One other thing about IQ tests: I have read that when they were first developed they found the girls/women were outdoing the boys/males in the tests, so they altered them so that the males did better. If that is true, then would it be possible to do the same for any groups that generally don't do as well? Does anyone have any information about this?
I recently read an article (In Time or Newsweek, I think) about how they were testing autistics with a person asking questions, and the IQ tests were turning out all very low, like 20, which didn't make sense.
Then it dawned on them that that was the worst way to test autistics, with a stranger trying to interact with them. They devised a test that the autistic child could take away and go by themselves to take it, and found that there were even some very highly intelligent autistics in the group of testees.
Something to think about with IQ tests. Perhaps some are being asked to do it a way that just won't work for them.
