About Intelligence Quotient Testing
IQ scores have been shown to be associated with such factors as morbidity and mortality, parental social status, and, to a substantial degree, biological parental IQ. While the heritability of IQ has been investigated for nearly a century, there is still debate about the significance of heritability estimates and the mechanisms of inheritance. Psychometricians generally regard IQ tests as having high statistical reliability. IQ tests involve the measure of two primary components — verbal and performance. Because the performance portion of the IQ test requires physical manipulation of objects in front of the testing psychologist, a legitimate IQ test cannot be taken online.
