Learning and Intelligence: A Review of Empirical and Theoretical Issues. Theoretical Paper No. 47.
The relationship between learning ability and intelligence has continually been a focus of theory and research. It is argued in this paper that the inconclusive results of studies relating individual differences variables such as intellectual abilities to learning are due to a too pragmatic, theoretical orientation. Theoretical models explicating the role of individual differences constructs are examined in a developmental context and compared with empirical efforts to cross-link components of intelligence and learning. In contrast to earlier evaluations, this review suggests that cross-linkages are often meaningful, systematic, and interpretable and that they may form the building blocks for inclusive conceptualizations of intellectual development which pay attention to both treatment and individual differences variance.
