Straight Talk about Mental Tests

Front Cover
Free Press, 1981 - Psychology - 269 pages
This book is for those of the general public who want to learn more about mental testing and its controversies. It presupposes no background in the specialized terminologies or mathematical underpinnings of psychometrics, statistics, or quantitative genetics that make most of the serious literature on the "IQ controversy" so inaccessible to the educated public who are not professionals in the field of mental measurement.
