IQ Tests

“The goal of IQ tests is to predict someone’s academic potential, likelihood of a learning disability, and general potential for success. IQ tests seek to evaluate an individual’s cognitive ability, or their ability to understand ideas. Specifically, they test a person’s reasoning and critical thinking skills. IQ tests can be helpful for identifying learning needs whether a student needs more help than others or whether they can handle more challenging work.” says Austin Woodruff from ectutoring.com.

So these tests do have their benefits for identifying when a child needs more special educational help but it doesn’t entirely identify a persons entire intelligence like their emotional or social intelligence which is considered intelligence too.
