Intelligence test

They use intelligence tests to measure the children's thinking skills. Alfred Binet was the one who first developed this test and Lewis M. Terman helped to improve this test. The outcome of this test is the Intelligence Quotients referred to as IQ. The average of a child IQ is 80 and 119. An intelligence test includes building a tower of blocks, identifying parts of they body. Two people with the same IQ may have very different abilities. Tests measure different abilities. They must use this test with caution. These tests have also been criticized for cultural bias. In addition language differences can also effect test results. Their goal is for all children to be assessed fairly.
