Abstract

American children of Mexican parentage were found to have consistently lower mean IQ scores than the American children of white non-Mexican parentage. In view of certain uncontrolled environmental factors no final statement of the relative native superiority can be made. The adequacy of the non-language score of the California Test of Mental Maturity was questioned. The appropriateness of recording an index of intellectual brightness for a child who is not a member of the cultural group upon which the test was standardized is doubted. 26-item bibliography.
