Measuring Intelligence with Latinos / by Daisy Rosario | August 7, 2014

Measuring Intelligence with Latinos

What do we mean when we talk about intelligence? We start by taking a look at some controversial claims about Hispanics and IQ.

Then we talk to Dr. Michael Lopez. He explains a little bit about our complicated brains, as well as what factors he believes need to be accounted for if you are looking for ways of gauging intelligence for people of all backgrounds.
