Bill D BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance (324* d) RE: BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance 31 Dec 20


When I was in 7th grade, I saw a test score that said 155. The thing is, I was better then at taking tests than I was at 'processing knowledge'. That was what I remember as the Stanford Binet test that students were given. I took it 5 times... twice in the 3rd grade when we moved. I always got high scores, but I had never learned **how to study** and had breezed thru school easily until I hit high school and and college where it was more than just collecting facts and faking it. I had to really work to deal with higher education.
   I agree that IQ numbers are not a great indication of any basic competence. They always reflect culture, genetics, peer acceptance..etc. ...but many points in that long article about language skills being important really resonated...
