If you have a question about this talk, please contact Michal Kosinski.

Many people continue to ask the question ‘which is the smarter sex?’ Using examples from the UK standardisation of the Raven’s Progressive Matrices, I will discuss two different approaches to answering this age-old question. I will discuss the commonly-used Classical Test Theory, and will try to convince the audience that the modern methods of Structural Equation Modelling are the better option.
