Abstract

In this commentary, I argue that adverse is unlikely to be eliminated, although can be reduced to some extent, as long as a test assesses cognitively loaded constructs such as general intelligence and other specific cognitive abilities such as verbal and quantitative abilities based on ample research conducted in personal selection and educational admission.
