IQ, the Worst Performance Rule, and Spearman's Law: A Reanalysis and Extension.
Coyle, Thomas R.
Intelligence, v31 n5 p473-89 2003
Tested the hypothesis that the worst performance rule (worst performance predicts "g" better than best performance) would hold for younger and lower-IQ children, but perhaps not for older and higher-IQ children. Data from 81 non-gifted and 85 gifted students in grades 2 through 4 show that only younger non-gifted children showed evidence of the worst performance rule. (SLD)
