History of IQ Tests

 

The IQ test as we know today began with the Stanford-Binet test. Theodore Simon and Alfred Binet devised the IQ test in 1905. Their post test analysis was used to indicate a need for more teaching and didn't necessarily imply an inability to learn. This philosophy is still held today with professionals and researchers.

IQ, an abbreviation for "intelligence quotient", is a score believed to measure general cognitive ability derived from a set of standardized tests. It is expressed as a number normalized so that the average IQ in an age group is 100 -- in other words an individual scoring 115 is above-average when compared to similarly aged people. The distribution of IQ scores is more-or-less Gaussian, that is it follows the famous "bell curve".
