It’s a big debate among psychologists and marketers as to whether the Quiz that is used in IQ tests is relevant or not. Some say it is as it is like the hiring practices that are on the market and if you haven’t been contacted for a job yet, you can still join. Others say that the use of the Quiz in IQ tests is completely irrelevant. With this article, I will try to address this question.
The first thing to note when evaluating the use of the Quiz in IQ tests is the fact that the Quiz is strictly a test of one’s ability to answer yes or no questions. It is not a measure of IQ or any other kind of intelligence.
So why is the use of the Quiz necessary? As stated before, the Quiz is intended to provide a basis for determining the true intelligence level of the person taking the test.
The information that is gathered from the test can be used in research and in developing programs that will be able to help the able person to be able to function at their full potential. How is this accomplished? By providing them with information that is factual and accurate, while making it easy for them to complete the test.
Many psychologists believe that the proper way to do this is to give a series of different questions to each person taking the test. It should look something like this: The doorbell rings. If the person who answers yes has a college degree, the next question should read: Is that a correct answer?
Once these questions have been asked, the person taking the test should then be allowed to choose what answer they would like to get correct. When the data is collected and analyzed, the psychologists and other professionals in the field can determine the actual intelligence level of the person taking the test.
Other experts believe that it is not necessary to allow people to pick a right answer in order to determine their intelligence level. They believe that this is a way of measuring a certain degree of intelligence that is already measured and not something new.
Here is another point of contention: What is a Quiz? If a person is asked a series of questions and each question has only two possible answers, then the Quiz would be viewed as an IQ test. This would mean that the test is not valid and should not be used in IQ tests.
Some scientists believe that IQ tests are also not needed, as the results of the IQ tests given will already have been compiled. These scientists argue that there is no need to gather additional data from tests that are not valid. However, this idea has not been put forth by scientists in the field of neuroscience, who claim that the results of a brain scan, which uses only one kind of question, should be valid.
But even if a person is given the opportunity to answer yes or no questions, does this mean that the person being tested is not intelligent enough to take the IQ test? The fact of the matter is that all the questions in the quiz are not even meant to be answered in the affirmative or negative manner. In fact, most of the questions are meant to be open ended and a person is allowed to choose what they would like to get right or wrong.
With all of this said, does it really matter if the quiz in the IQ test is a valid source of data? The fact is that the IQ test should not be considered valid until the data it gathers are thoroughly analyzed. Otherwise, all of the science and technology developed by scientists in the field of neuroscience can only go to waste.
