Testing Our Children When the World Shuts Down: Analyzing Recommendations for Adapted Tele-Assessment during COVID-19 - Shelley Kathleen Krach, Tracy L. Paskiewicz, Malaya M. Monk, 2020
  https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0734282920962839AbstractIn 2017, the National Association of School Psychologists described tele-assessment as the least researched area of telehealth. This became problematic in 2020 when COVID-19 curtailed the administration of face-to-face assessments. Publishers began to offer computer-adapted tele-assessment methods for tests that had only previously been administered in person. Recommendations for adapted tele-assessment practice had to be developed with little empirical data. The current study analyzed recommendations from entities including professional organizat...

No negative Flynn effect in France: Why variations of intelligence should not be assessed using tests based on cultural knowledge - ScienceDirect
Article link - IntelligenceAbstractIn 2015, Dutton and Lynn published an account of a decrease of intelligence in France (negative Flynn effect) which had considerable societal impact. This decline was argued to be biological. However, there is good reason to be skeptical of these conclusions. The claim of intelligence decline was based on the finding of lower scores on the WAIS-III (normed in 1999) for a recent sample, but careful examination of the data suggests that this decline was in fact limited to subtests with a strong influence of culture-dependent declarative knowledge. In Study 1, we re-analyzed the data used by...

Study limitations include the limited assessment of sociocultural variables and generalizability (e.g., other Latina/o populations, age limit [19  − 60 years]).

On the nonlinear association between intelligence and openness: Not much of an effect beyond an average IQ - ScienceDirect
 On the nonlinear association between intelligence and openness: Not much of an effect beyond an average IQ - ScienceDirect  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0191886920303585AbstractThe linear association between intelligence and openness has been estimated at r  ≈ 0.20 to 0.30. However, little research has examined the possibility of a nonlinear effect between the two dimensions. Consequently, task-based intelligence and self-reported openness data were collected from 371 participants (UK community sample). We found that the association was nonlinear, i.e., the positive...
