While not widely used, Thurstone's model influenced later theories. There have been two experiments with lowering this to 80 but in both cases these men could not master soldiering well enough to justify their costs. For example, Gq and Grw may be seen as measures of school achievement and not IQ. Most notably, they were developed under the banner of dynamic assessment that focuses on the testing of learning and developmental potential for instance, in the work of Reuven Feuerstein and his associates, who has criticized standard IQ testing for its putative assumption or acceptance of "fixed and immutable" characteristics of intelligence or cognitive functioning. One suggestion is that children react differently to the same environment because of different genes.
The study and measurement of human intelligence is one of the most controversial subjects in psychology. For much of its history, the focus has been on differences between people, what it means for one individual to be more intelligent than the other, and how such differences might have arisen. With the emphasis on these issues, the efforts to understand the general nature of intelligence have been obscured. The author provides clear, comprehensive, and extremely readable introduction to this difficult subject. In addition to a discussion of the traditional topics raised by IQ tests, this book attempts to bring the theory and data of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience to bear on some of these other, equally important scientific questions. Mackintosh, a distinguished animal-learning theorist having considerable psychometric experience and no aversion to tackling difficult and controversial issues, weighs in with his own views [on the g factor].
It is proposed that there are two ways to answer this complaint. The first concerns the new hypothesis testing models in factor analysis. The biology of intelligence has various meanings and four are discussed: biology as theory; biology as race and genetics; biology as neurobiology; and biology as basic psychological processes. The last of these is considered in some detail and it is found that reaction time, evoked potentials and inspection time offer bright prospects for further research on the biology of psychometric intelligence.
