What Is Intelligence Testing?
Intelligence tests are psychological tests that are designed to measure a variety of mental functions, such as reasoning, comprehension, and judgment.
What does it measure?
The goal of intelligence tests is to obtain an idea of the person’s intellectual potential. The tests center around a set of stimuli designed to yield a score based on the test maker’s model of what makes up intelligence. Intelligence tests are often given as a part of a battery of tests.
Benefits of the test
Intelligence tests are excellent predictors of academic achievement and provide an outline of a person’s mental strengths and weaknesses. Many times the scores have revealed talents in many people, which have led to an improvement in their educational opportunities. Teachers, parents, and psychologists are able to devise individual curricula that matches a person’s level of development and expectations.
How reliable are the score?
This intelligence test is one of the most widely used in the evaluation of both children and adults. The current version of the adult test, the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), is in the fourth edition (i.e. WAIS-IV).
