Let the games begin. During one of his jail stints, he may have been give something like a Beta inelligence test. This is a quick and dirty estimate of intelligence that doesn't require reading ability, first developed for the Army in WWI, with an updated version still being used in some prison systems. It can be administered in groups by people with littls training, and inmates are often unmotivated to perform at peak. To get an accurate estimate of intelligence, one must be tested individually, by a psychologist or under the supervision of a psychologist. Now, Ricky is motivated to perform...badly.

Also, an intellegence score isn't the only criterion for an MR diagnosis.
