Report on the ASVAB/AFQT tests

I previously posted a special report on the ASVAB (and derived AFQT) scores. The report explained the difference between aptitude and IQ tests and explained why ASVAB scores should not be used to estimate general intelligence, especially in Atkins MR/ID death penalty cases.

Kevin Foley send me a recent special report on the ASVAB. It is not focused on the issues I addressed, but is an interesting read re: the academic readiness of young adults in the US. I have posted a copy that includes my "IQs Reading" feature (click here to learn more)---bottom line, I have embedded my comments in the PDF file rather than post them in the body of this blog post.
