Race and intelligence, an evaluation by Melvin M Tumin( Book )

7 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report of unesco committee stated that there were not measurable differences between what is due to innate capacity and what is the result of environmental influences, training, and education. Tests which have made allowance for most differences in environmental opportunities have shown essential similarity in mental characteristics among all human groups. The unesco report has been challenged by a series of publications contending that it ignored scientific evidence that the negro in the united states is inferior in intelligence to the white. Four distinguished experts in tests and measurements, psychology, social and cultural patterns, and anthropology were asked to state their opinions on the challenge. Questions were asked on innate capacity, test reliability, negro intelligence, and other innate differences between negro and white. The scientists are in substantial agreement that the claims of the challenging publications cannot be supported by any substantial scientific evidence. Moreover, future claims of innate differences between negro and white cannot be valid unless--distinctive racial homogeneity of the group is demonstrated, social and cultural backgrounds of the group are equal, and adequate tests of proved reliability and validity are used

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central focus of this report is on the interrelationships among social class, education, and intergroup attitudes. A second major focus of this research concerns the factors that shape english, french, and german attitudes toward "outsiders." Specifically, the study investigated (1) the extent and type of impact that the educational systems of these countries have had upon the beliefs and attitudes of their people, (2) the difference in these areas between youth and adults, and (3) the ways in which the beliefs and attitudes of youth resemble those of adults. These relationships are explored by the analysis of data secured from interviews conducted with national samples of the populations of england, france, and germany in late 1960 and early 1961. this report represents an interim stage in a larger project.
