Testing Skills, Not Intelligence
Kagan, Jerome
Social Policy, 8, 2, 18, Sep-Oct 77
This article tackles the debate on general intelligence tests versus specific skills assessment as predictors of academic performance. In a Minneapolis study, a wide range of tests were given to 355 preschoolers. Results from a test assessing early reading skills more closely predicted actual third grade reading achievement than did results from general intelligence tests.
