The Atkins MR/ID Capital Punishment Flynn Effect Project: Announcement and request for assistance

Anyone familiar with Atkins MR/ID death penalty cases knows that the Flynn Effect is a frequently argued measurement issue in these cases.  To facilitate a thorough understanding of the pro- and con- Flynn Effect research literature, a small group of individuals are working together to build a master archive of FE related research articles. 

The core of the system is the master reference list of all articles.  This is a project of the Intellectual Competence and Death Penalty blog.

This on-line archive system is issue neutral.  The systems goal is simple--to put the key Atkins MR/ID death penalty FE articles in one location for use by researchers, expert witnesses in such proceedings, psychologists who engage in intelligence testing, and lawyers and officers of the court.  The system will be updated as new material is published.

Accessing and navigating the archive

The archive material can be accessed one of three ways (and you can switch between each navigation mode via the viewing options in the upper right-hand corner of the web pages).

  • If you want to navigate via a more traditional web-page expanding outline format click on the "Home" option.
  • If you want a linear table of contents outline navigation mode click on the Table of Contents option.
  • If you love seeing the "big picture" all at once (using your Gv or visual-spatial skills), start with the blogmasters favorite, the clickable visual-graphic overview map mind map approach and click on the Overview Map option.
Or mix and match navigational methods to meet your temporary whims.
