    Total IQ scores were commonly used in analyses of cognitive ability. Most studies demonstrated that being born into a low-SES household or achieving low SES in adulthood resulted in a higher risk of mortality (e.g., Deary & Der, ; Hart et al., ; Osler et al., ; Steenland, Henley, & Thun, ). The relative risk ratios and hazard Cited by: implies that above certain levels of IQ, intelligence is no longer predictive of important real-world accomplishments - evidence doesn't support the claim because the correlation between IQ and life achievements remains essentially identical even at extremely high levels of IQ.

    The conclusions that many people drew from the book were that IQ tests are an accurate and largely sufficient measure of intelligence, that IQ is primarily genetically controlled, that IQ is little influenced by environmental factors, that racial differences in IQ are likely due at least in part, and perhaps in large part, to.   “Intelligence: Knowns and Unknowns” offered essentially the same portrait of mainstream scientific opinion on the nature, origins, and predictive value of intelligence. Both statements suggested that The Bell Curve’s portrayal of intelligence was basically accurate. 4 Neither statement had any discernible impact on media reporting.

    Reliability and validity of assessment methods. Assessment, whether it is carried out with interviews, behavioral observations, physiological measures, or tests, is intended to permit the evaluator to make meaningful, valid, and reliable statements about makes John Doe tick? What makes Mary Doe the unique individual that she is? Whether these questions .   The persistent so-called “achievement gap” reveals the same racial IQ hierarchy on standardized academic exams. The SAT is largely a measure of general intelligence. Scores on the SAT correlate very highly with scores on standardized tests of intelligence, and like IQ scores, are stable across time and not easily increased through training.
