Long ago I stopped taking tha ly's at face value. So many factor* entered Into the situation. The perton who gave thn IQ, the elrcumiUmcei, the background of the child, his general health, Ms paat experiences. Only when the IQ wai backed by the teacher's knowledge of the child wai I willing to accept It. It Is at most a starting point for the teacher's valuation of a child's ability. When, at In this Instance, a child hai a good IQ but 1« unable to do the work of tha grade, the IQ can be discounted and the teacher better begin on the flnt atepi of teaching and slowly thoughtfully, study the underlying pattern of the child'* Inteill gence and ability. An IQ that cannot be harnessed Is worse than usuless. A far surer grading Is the one based on what the child can do with the subjects offered him If he cannot read In spite of all the Instruction given him, If he appears to have no number seme so that he cannot see the dl* ference between 19 and 54, If he cannot button his own coat or be depended upon to get to school on time, when started ahead of time, what good Is the IQof 128, orupT That can happen, We had » pupil who came to the school Parents Deplore Buying Spree of Engaged Pair By ABIGAIL VAN BCIIEN ABB* I see nothing DEAR ABBV: I am 19 and my boy friend Is 20.

The IQ depends on many factors. Take the IQ as just another rating to be proved in time and by experience and depend on the experienced teacher's recommendation until the quality of the IQ can be proven.
