School Achievement Strongly Predicts Midlife IQ

University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine

By. Mark Bauch


Theory

  • Elementary achievement is correlated with midlife IQ


Hypothesis

  • There will be a correlation between early school achievement and midlife IQ scores.


Theoretical Construct 1

  • Early School Achievement

    -Operational Definition

    -Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS)

    -Grades 3-8 were tested

    -Tests Language and Mathematics


Theoretical Construct 2

  • Intelligence Testing for Mid Life IQ

    • Operational Definition

      -Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, 3rd ed. (WAIS-III, Wechsler, 1997)

      -Measures IQ

      -Individually Administered by a trained research assistant


Design

  • Study and Subjects

    • 219 Participants who were members of the Iowa Adoption Studies

    • Both IQ and school achievement data were available


Independent Variable

  • School Achievement

    Dependent Variable

  • IQ performance


Results

  • School Achievement scores were highly correlated with WAIS-III FSIQ, sharing 41% of their variance.

  • Verbal IQ shared more variance with school achievement(50%) than performance IQ(14%).


Results cont.

  • As expected, higher school achievement scores were associated with more years of education, higher income, and higher occupational status.


More Results

  • When computing partial correlations between school achievement and mid life education. (controlling for Full Scale IQ)

    • School achievement and educational level was reduced by half (r = 0.17, p<0.05, table 3).
