"Intelligence Testing and Minority Students: Foundations, Performance Factors, and Assessment Issues" [book review].
Jensen, Arthur R.
Intelligence, v30 n2 p216-17 2002
This book focuses on topics germane to cognitive abilities viewed from a "minority psychology" perspective. The most contentious chapters concern test bias and heredity, with culture, socioeconomic status, and case viewed as the chief explanations for test score differences between social classes and racial and ethnic groups. The reviewer criticizes this book for the "didactic inadequacy" of its superficial presentation of central issues. (SLD)
