THE STANDARDIZATION OF THE THIRD REVISION OF THE STANFORD-BINET INTELLIGENCE SCALE ON NEGRO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN IN GRADES ONE, TWO, AND THREE IN THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES.
VAN DE RIET, VERNON
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO PROVIDE NORMS FOR NEGRO CHILDREN IN THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES ON THE THIRD REVISION OF THE STANFORD-BINET INTELLIGENCE SCALE. SUBJECTS WERE DRAWN FROM THREE COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN EACH OF THE STATES OF ALABAMA, GEORGIA, FLORIDA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND TENNESSEE. EXAMINERS WERE TRAINED FOR UNIFORMITY OF PROCEDURE. DEMOGRAPHIC QUESTIONNAIRES WERE ADMINISTERED TO PARENTS. THE 900 CHILDREN WERE ADMINISTERED THE TEST AT THE FIRST-, SECOND-, AND THIRD-GRADE LEVELS. ITEM ANALYSIS WAS PERFORMED TO DETERMINE APPROPRIATENESS OF ITEMS AT EACH AGE LEVEL, AND CORRELATIONS MADE BETWEEN DEMOGRAPHIC AND BIOGRAPHIC DATA AND THE INTELLIGENCE AND ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES OBTAINED. AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE MEAN IQ OF THE TOTAL GROUP WAS 80.82 AND THE STANDARD DEVIATION, 12.40. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN IQ WERE FOUND BETWEEN THE GRADES AND SEXES ALTHOUGH THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN IQ FOR AGE, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, AND COMMUNITY SIZE BEYOND THE .01 LEVEL. RESULTS INDICATE THAT THERE IS NEARLY A 20-POINT IQ DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MEAN STANDARDIZATION SCORE OF THE 1960 STANFORD-BINET AND THE MEAN OF THIS SAMPLE. (HB)
