The Intelligence of Japanese Children
Intelligence is a major determinant of educational achievement and it is therefore natural to ask whether the high educational standards of Japanese children may be due to superior intelligence. The term intelligence is used in the sense of an individual’s general learning and problem solving abilities. It is generally considered that these abilities are acquired through both inherited and environmental determinants and are adequately measured by intelligence tests (see, for example, Eysenck, 1979; Vernon, 1979; Jensen, 1980).
