An investigation of IQ movement in early childhood
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree NameBachelor of Science with Honours
The aim of this work is to investigate whether there is movement over time in early childhood IQ, and if so whether this movement differs between pre-term and full term children. Movement was indeed observed for both pre-term and full term children, however the 'type' of movement differed significantly between pre-term and full term children only for those categorised as normal. The analysis also examines the factors which may influence the movement. Various techniques are employed to contend with issues including small sample sizes, aligning independent IQ measurement scales and variable selection.
