Like some think IQ is not just the ‘number’.
IQ tests should be done only by qualified and experienced PSYCHOLOGISTS.
IQ tests are to reveal many aspects of a child / individual.
Proper analysis of IQ test results can help differentiate if the child has real IQ related issues or emotional issues, which make the child perform poor in studies.
Also the cognitive capacities of the child / individual can be understood for the purpose of mapping the Strengths and Weaknesses of the child / individual.
We do conduct IQ tests for special children and normal children to depending on the requirements (Special needs / career needs)
GSR advocates using of any test to IDENTIFY STRENGTHS of the child / individual more than the weaknesses / problems.
