Abstract

It has been frequently noted that I.Q. examinations, while professing to measure innate intelligence, are riddled with racial, gender, and class biases. Thus a low-income, inner-city youth, confronting a seemingly innocuous phrase like "behind the sofa" on an I.Q. test, may find it unfathomable, not realizing that it is just a middle-class way of saying "in back of the couch."
