Example text

Many of the studies reported in the mental retardation literature have compared institutionalized retarded and noninstitutionalized nonretarded individuals. Thus, there is a recurring ambiguity in interpretation: Do these studies inform us about the effects of intellectual deficit, institutionalization, or some interaction of these factors? There is little question that, at least before the advent of small community-based facilities. the prevalent position was that institutions had extremely negative and monolithic effects on development.

But there is no doubt that the present evidence overwhelmingly rejects the null hypothesis. This is true of simple RT as well as choice RT (also termed discriminative or disjunctive RT). Both simple and choice RT are negatively correlated with IQ. Mean differences in R T (or in various parameters of R T) between criterion groups selected for differences in ability as measured by psychometric tests or scholastic performance always give more clearly impressive evidence of a relationship between R T and general ability than the correlation coefficient.
