Frankenberger, William; Harper, Jerry
Mental Retardation, v26 n3 p133-36 Jun 1988
State guidelines for 1985-86 concerning definitions, methods, and procedures used to diagnose mental retardation were compared to those of 1981-82. Although states varied widely, more states are now either mentioning or specifying IQ, adaptive behavior, and academic achievement criteria. An IQ cutoff of 75 is more common than in 1981-82.
