It is certainly the case that IQ is a social construct designed to approximate something that we call intelligence, and although we may not agree on the definition of intelligence or IQ, one of the interesting artifacts of this ancient effort it that no one--at least to my knowledge--has ever come up with a way to measure IQ, however defined, that doesn't correlate positively with school achievement. Thus IQ is of interest if only for that reason. T.
