  419. Scientists debunk the IQ myth: Notion of measuring one's intelligence quotient by singular, standardized test is highly misleading

  425. It claims to debunk the g-factor by showing that there is a memory component and a logic component but, so what? They are correlated and together these components form g.
  426. People who score higher on the memory components also score higher on the logic components even though one can be more performant on one than the other.

  435. The article The Good Bush Lost links is one giant hit job on multiple people (https://www.socialevraagstukken.nl/onethische-wetenschap-racistische-wetenschappers/). Nowhere in the article do they link to where Nijenhuis allegedly says what they claim he says (maybe he does or maybe he doesn't, I dono). They do however link to a study (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2016.00399/full) that Nijenhuis allegedly misrepresents.  And when they describe the study they conveniently exclude relevant results of the study. For example, for our purposes an extremely important result from the survey: "Around 90% of experts believed that genes had at least some influence on cross-national differences in cognitive ability." On top of all that, the study itself is methodologically dishonest. It asks experts to rate 15 predefined factors from 0 to 100 on how important they think those factors are for large cross-national differences in cognitive ability and intelligence studies (including PISA, TIMSS etc.). Only one of those factors is "genes", while all others are environmental. Genes vs. the environment is a false dichotomy that researchers themselves somewhat(maybe) acknowledge ("it is difficult to clearly distinguish them because they are somewhat connected, so please give only a rough estimate").

  440. And because two of the factors are about education, the researchers dishonestly add them together and proclaim "The sum of both education factors yielded the highest rating (21.64%)."
  441.  
  442. About the article on the picture this clown(The Good Bush Lost) added. The idiot that wrote that article made a fraudulent statement "the 71 experts thought that 17% of IQ differences could have genetic bases, compared to 70% context factors and 13% test problems". As I mentioned above, "genes" are only 1 out of 15 factors. He groups 14 "non-genes" factors into two groups named context factors and test problems. He then simply adds all the factors in their respective groups together and proclaims those two groups as non-genetic factors. He simply asserts that the differences in all of those "non-genes" factors(culture, wealth, health,...) are in no way influenced by genetic differences. The experts in the study were not asked about to what extent are the differences of those "non-genes" factors heritable.

  473. Assessing Student’s Achievement Gaps between Ethnic Groups in Brazil
  474. https://www.mdpi.com/2079-3200/7/1/7

  478. Your brazil study btw concerns only one specific math achievement test. Attendance of the test is voluntary. To quote:
  479.  
  480. “The data corresponds to the performance scores of stu- dents in the Brazilian national high school exam (abbre- viated “ENEM” from the Portuguese “Exame Nacional do Ensino M ́edio”). This is a standardized national exam, developed and coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Education of Brazil. Since its first edition in 1998, the national exam occurs every year. Although non- mandatory, the individual scores can be currently used by students to compete for enrollment at federal universities (tuition-free) and for other federal high-education schol- arship programs to study in private universities (with tuition). Any person at any age who has completed or is about to complete secondary education (the high school) can participate in the exam.”
  481.  
  482. This means the test is primarily taken by kids with edcuational aspirations. Weak students will have less of an incentive to take it and will differentially be from ethnic groups with lower mean scores if score differences exist.
  483.  
  484. They further restricted themselves to students having a high school degree:
  485.  
  486. “Therefore, the student must (i) have self-declared ethnicity; (ii) be born and raised in Brazil; (iii) be completing high-school in 2014 and be 17 (seventeen) years old (this is the ex- pected age to complete high-school studies); (iv) not be disabled; (v) not be pregnant or lactating ; (vi) not be married, divorced or widowed; (vii) participate in both parts of the exam; (viii) have followed most of the sec- ondary education in publicly administered and funded schools; (ix) live in an urban area; (x) study in an urban school; (xi) live in a house with 6 (six) or less people including the candidate.”
  487.  
  488. This constitutes an issue of rage restriction in addition to the self selection problem above.
  489.  
  490. These two confounders weaken the study considerably. If you want I can dig deeper. The statistical test they use is Welch's t -test: This is strange, with IQ administration you would use student's t-test due to the underlying data being normally distributed and having similar variance. Welch's t test has less power than the student's t test - if you want to find an effect, this is the way not to do it. They further split the data further into income categories - this kind of subgroup analysis is usually due to p value fishing. Normally this is what you do to find results - it can however also be done if you dont want to find results - sometimes they are not there due to chance. Splitting the data like that also makes you vulnerable to controling for causal variables as well, sometimes called mount everest regression.
  491.  
  492. The authors also display general ignorance:
  493.  
  494. “On the other hand, p -values > . 01 indicate that the null hypothesis is true, i.e. mean scores are equal.”
  495.  
  496. This is incorrect - it just means that means could not convincingly shown to be different.
  497.  
  498. One might further say that despite not achieving statistical significance in all cases, pairwise mean score differences still favor white students in all comparisons and the reason for the large p values is probably found in all already defined statistical pitfalls.
  499.  
  500. But the statistical nitty gritty is not as important as the range restriction and self selction limitation - this data does not consitute representative sample of the populations in question.
