Psy/201 Testing Intelligence Summary

Satisfactory Essays
Testing Intelligence After taking the web-based intelligence test and reviewed the answers, I am somewhat considered. I do not feel this test result was all that accurate. With only thirty questions asked, which ranged from math to general knowledge, I feel that it might not have gathered enough information to make it accurate. Not to mention, the test was timed and not divided into sections. There were a couple of math problems that I had to stop and figure out and I was unable to answer the last four questions. I think that lowered my score. So I no, I do not feel this IQ test was fully accurate. In a way I feel that the test was biased. Not every 27 year old thinks or has been taught the same way I have. I feel the test asked for some personal information that I considered making the IQ test biased. The web-based test asked for my hair color, marital status, if I smoked or not, and if I exercised. This was all asked after I took the test and before I was given my test score, so it could adjust the testing due to the information I gave. I feel this test was about not just about one’s IQ, but also by the diversity of those who take the test. I do not have any negative feelings towards this IQ test. However, I feel the test was too general, inaccurate, and biased that I do not think it is good to compare myself with other people. I feel this way because the test is timed and based on some personal information. I do not think you can compare it to others because everyone tests

Variations in samples or cohorts, times of testing, and types of measures make comparisons between studies confusing. It has been difficult to…
