A look inside some IQ tests


  1. Deary uses Dataset 1 to help answer the question, "Is there one ‘intelligence’ or many?" (As he notes, this study of the WAIS-III is just one example of many other such studies.)
      1. Which particular results (statistics) in the study are relevant--and how--to answering this one-or-many question? Please be specific!
      2. What answer did Dataset 1 provide, if any, to the one-many question? Explain. Please be specific.

2.      To what extent did the public opinions you documented agree with Deary's conclusions? (Note: Deary is providing just one example of many such studies getting essentially the same results.)
