The Rising Curve: Long-Term Gains in IQ and Related Measures (APA Science Volumes)

The Rising Curve: Long-Term Gains in IQ and Related Measures (APA Science Volumes) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a long time now, intelligence and achievement tests have been cast as the bearers of bad news. In The Bell Curve, for example, Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray argue that there are sharp limits on the intelligence of most of the population; they also note that the test scores of several minority groups have been chronically low. But the trends documented here, in The Rising Curve, tell a very different story. Intelligence test scores are going up everywhere in the world, and the Black-White gap in the school achievement of American children has closed substantially in recent years. This volume establishes these encouraging trends beyond any doubt, and explores what they may mean.
