Intelligence Citations Bibliography for Articles Related to IQ Testing
Scarr is a leading scholar on intelligence, and it will be good to see expansion of this article. I have posted a bibliography of Intelligence Citations for the use of all Wikipedians who have occasion to edit articles on human intelligence and related issues. I happen to have circulating access to a huge academic research library at a university with an active research program in those issues (and to another library that is one of the ten largest public library systems in the United States) and have been researching these issues since 1989. You are welcome to use these citations for your own research and to suggest new sources to me by comments on that page. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 21:11, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Summary of Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study in lead is problematic
The summary of the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study in the lead
By their teens, adoptees with two black birth parents achieved lower scores than did adoptees with one or no black birth parents, suggesting a genetic component to race differences in IQ.
seems to contradict a direct quote from Scarr in the main article for the study
...contrary to Levin's and Lynn's assertions, results from the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study provide little or no conclusive evidence for genetic influences underlying racial differences in intelligence and achievement.
This could lead to someone drawing the wrong conclusion about the results of the study (which were ambiguous at best by the authors' own admission) after just skimming the lead. After reading through the relevant paper(s), I plan to make an adjustment to the Scarr article so that the summary statement about the Minnesota study falls more in line with her own statement in "A reply to Levin and Lynn" that "The true causes of racial-group differences in IQ, or in any other characteristic, are likely to be too complex to be captured by locating them on a single hereditarianism-environmentalism dimension" (p. 31). --Ernstkm (talk) 16:11, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
