Assessing Intelligence
Applying a Bio-Cultural Model



May 1998 | 263 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In response to shortcomings inherent in mainstream intelligence assessment, the authors of this volume propose a `bio-cultural' model as an alternative approach to current models. They offer a comprehensive and informed understanding of biological and cultural influences on intellectual behaviour, and explore the implications of the bio-cultural model for practitioners, researchers and policy makers.
