Frisby, Craig L.
School Psychology Review, v24 n1 p12-19 1995
Commentary discusses concepts of "robustness" as the focal point in evaluating controversies surrounding "The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in America," particularly as it applies to relationships between IQ variation and school achievement. Emphasis is placed on distinguishing between concepts of reasonableness versus robustness in evaluating alternate explanations for average black/white differences in scholastic achievement. (Author)
