I dont understand this Psychology question and need help to study.
Race and IQ
After carefully reading the article you chose in u03s2, prepare a 35 page paper about the controversy that began when Arthur Jensen published an article about racial differences in intelligence. Present both sides of the argument, then analyze which side has the stronger position. Find at least one other scholarly article from the Capella University Library to support your argument.
In your paper:
1.Describe what factors that intelligence tests measure.
2.Explain the differences indicated when the terms “nature versus nurture” are used.
3.Analyze the controversy over using the same intelligence test to compare different cultural groups, and support your analysis with information from professional and scholarly sources.

Issues With IQ Testing
Imagine you are going to give a factual, non-partisan presentation on intelligence testing to parents of middle schoolage children. Address the following areas:
What intelligence tests measure.
How IQ tests measure intelligence.
A historical perspective on IQ tests.
Whether intelligence tests are culturally biased.
For each topic, list the main points you want to make. Then select one topic to focus on. In 300 words or less, write out fully what you would say to the assembled parents.
Keep in mind that to make the strongest argument, you will need to present both sides of the IQ testing issue and answer the overriding question: Should we test children’s intelligence at all?
