Methods of Social Research: The Gladwell (2007) and Fischer et al. (1996) readings discuss the conceptualization, operationalization and measurement of intelligence in relation to herrnstiend and Murray’s controversial book The Bell curve (1994). Your ogjective is to discuss the methodoogical critique that gladwell and fischer et al make of Herrnstein and murrays research. In particular: How do Herrnstien and murray conceptualize intelligence, and how is this understanding of intelligence undermined by the flynn effect? What are the alternative conceptualizations of intelligence discussed in the Gladwell and Fischer et al. pieces? What is Herrnstien and Murray’s operational definition of intelligence and what, according to Fischer et al. is wrong with the operationalization of intelligence? Is the AFQT a reliable measure of intelligence? Finally explain the logic behind Fischer et al’s claim that the AFQT has a predictive validity but lacks content validity as a measure of intelligence. What according to Fischer et al, does the AFQT actually measure, and what does this imply for the relationship between intelligence and inequality in the United States.
