Discussion

COLLAPSE

Discuss the effects and influcences of culture on how we define and measure intelligence. In your discussion, include factors that may account for the fact that one cultural group may characteristically score lower than another on noverbal and verbal IQ tests. Consider the role of factors such as: cultural differences, cultural advantages/disadvantages, impaired or inability to understand written or oral directions, lack of interest/motivation in the testing situation, or factors more related to personality than intelligence.

Be specific in your response.  Include concepts from your readings and at least two scholarly sources. Include examples and specific tests and measures. Be sure to use APA style. Your initial post is due on Wednesday. The discussion closes on Sunday.
