This is for a discussion question, it can be a few paragraphs as long as every point is hit.
The following video addresses an older study conducted in Australia:
A researcher, seeking to address the cultural bias of intelligence testing, created intelligence tests for Aboriginal children. These tests allowed the children to demonstrate their intelligence in a culture specific way. Traditional intelligence tests of the time showed Aboriginals as a “less intelligent” race because the tests were based on cultural norms and knowledge not accessed by this group. After watching the video, provide a critical analysis of the study and on intelligence testing based on the concepts and ideas presented in the chapter.
