• tests
  • Wechsler originally created these tests to find out more about his patients at the Bellevue clinic and he found the then-current Binet IQ test unsatisfactory. (wikipedia.org)
  • When current IQ tests were developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less, although this was not always so historically. (wikipedia.org)
  • METHODS Ten high functioning subjects with autism spectrum disorder and 13 age and IQ matched controls were tested using recall tests. (bmj.com)
  • This means that about 68.2 percent of test-takers would obtain IQ scores on the CFIT that lie somewhere between 76 and 124, while scoring between 85 and 115 on most other IQ tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Culture Fair tests consist of three scales with non-verbal visual puzzles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some high-IQ societies, such as The Triple Nine Society, accept high scores on the CFIT-III as one of a variety of old and new tests for admission to the society. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tests are used by many including Mensa, which offers a place in their society to anyone scoring in the top 2% IQ scores Direct concept validity (sometimes called construct validity) refers to the degree to which a certain scale correlates with the concept or construct (i.e., source trait) which it purports to measure.

  • Do traditional IQ tests overlook some bright students? (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • Although educators still generally consider them good predictors of school performance, a faction of the psychological community is challenging the use of traditional standardized tests. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • IQ tests, ingrained in the nation's education system, are as American as apple pie. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • Today, in most U.S. school districts, students take at least two multiple-choice IQ tests during their early school years. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • At the other end of the spectrum, individual IQ tests administered by school psychologists are frequently used to diagnose learning disabilities and mental retardation. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • There were significant improvements with TMS for performance in the digit symbol substitution and verbal fluency tests, but no change of mood on a number of measures. (beds.ac.uk)
  • children
  • To avoid the potential confound of reading level, we also contrasted dyslexic and control children matched for reading performance, and we observed a similar difference, although in a smaller extent of cortex. (jneurosci.org)
  • Verbal reasoning skills were explored in a subgroup of 80 of these children. (aappublications.org)
  • A rating scale was developed to characterize the level of family involvement in the intervention program for children in the study. (aappublications.org)
  • Children who were enrolled earliest (eg, by 11 months of age) demonstrated significantly better vocabulary and verbal reasoning skills at 5 years of age than did later-enrolled children. (aappublications.org)
  • Regardless of degree of hearing loss, early-enrolled children achieved scores on these measures that approximated those of their hearing peers. (aappublications.org)
  • During the Great Society era of the 1960s, the founders of programs like Head Start hoped to raise the IQs of poor children, many of them black, with early education and extra doses of parenting and nutrition. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • average
  • This was a turning point in psychology: A new type of test had been produced in which the average level of performance was the criterion. (wilderdom.com)
  • Today, Jensen, a professor of educational psychology at the University of California-Berkeley, is even more convinced that biology causes the 15-point gap in the average scores of blacks and whites. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • measure
  • Jensen's troubling assertion spawned press reports that tended to portray IQ testing as a distasteful and inaccurate measure of individual ability. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • high
  • High scores can still be the ticket to America's own brand of privileged education -- public school classes for the gifted or expensive private schools geared to high achievers. (sunysuffolk.edu)
  • standard
  • An increase in maternal Ery-Se from the fifth to the 95th percentile [median: 0.44 μg/g hemoglobin (Hb)] was associated with an increase in full developmental score of 3.5 [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.1, 7. corresponding to 0.16 standard deviation (SD) at 5 y, and 8.1 (95% CI: 3.8, 13), corresponding to 0.24 SD at 10 y. (nih.gov)
  • early
  • Consistent with the findings of Yoshinaga-Itano et al, 1 significantly better language scores were associated with early enrollment in intervention. (aappublications.org)
  • level
  • A sub-hypothesis predicted a significant positive correlation between field independence and reading comprehension, when level of verbal IQ was statistically controlled. (ubc.ca)
  • factors
  • The analyses revealed that only 2 of these factors explained a significant amount of the variance in language scores obtained at 5 years of age: family involvement and age of enrollment. (aappublications.org)
  • among
  • Scientists such as Robert Rosenthal laid the groundwork for this understanding, revealing the importance of experimenter expectations in relation to participant performance and, among other things, the importance of experimenter gender ( 5 ). (cloudfront.net)
  • visual
  • The present study thus provides the first account of a focal cortical thickness reduction in dyslexia in the subregion of ventral occipitotemporal cortex specifically responsive to visual words, when age, gender, and reading performance are taken into account. (jneurosci.org)
  • concept
  • Concept validity is thus measured by correlating the scale with the pure factor and this can only be carried out by performing a methodologically sound factor analysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • range
  • For Verbal Items, the child answers questions that address a broad range of general knowledge topics. (wikipedia.org)
