For example, his score is likely to be better if he has been getting satisfaction from solving problems in school and at home. His score will be affected by how well he wants to do. It will be better if he has had much practice solving problems. If he is afraid of tests, he will do as well as he would if he not thinks of tests as a challenge he is able to meet. Another thing that will make a difference is how much a child depends on other people.

The more independent and selfreliant he is, the better he is likely to do on the test. So, you can see that a child's 1Q depends on several things, including those mentioned above. Because these things can and do change, a youngster's IQ can change considerably from his early childhood to his high school days. His score is more likely to rise than to fall. In many cases, of course, it will remain relatively unchanged.

(No way has yet been found to guarantee the improvement of la child's intelligence.) At the Fels Research Institute, where we have been studying child growth and development for many years, we have found that the IQ's of the children we studied changed most dramatically between the ages of six and twelve. Taking alternate forms of the same test at regular intervals, a fourth of the children we tested increased their scores by eighteen to fiftyseven IQ points from age two and a half to age twelve. We think that the increases happened mostly because these children came to rely on themselves more as they got more satisfaction from being able to master the problems they came across in school, at home, and at play. What does all this mean to the parent and to the teacher? Well, for one thing, it means we should not attach more importance to IQ scores than they deserve. The IQ score gives us a general idea how intelligent a child, is, but it does not tell the whole story.

Also, since we now know that independent children who have learned to compete successfully do better on intelligence tests, we should do all we can to encourage children to be more independent and to face challenges. We should help build their self-confidence. We have to find out what areas each child works best in, and give him challenging opportunities to work successfully in those areas. This leads him to view a an intellectual problem as a potentialIly pleasant emotional experience. Another interesting thing we found out at Fels Institute is that twice as many boys as girls show.

large increases in their IQ's. Research elsewhere agrees with this finding. For instance, one studyof elementary school childrenshowed that boys do better than girls on tests which measure their ability to be creative and to adjust to changing ideas. After studying these differences between boys and girls we think there are several reasons for them. Apparently, boys enjoy competing more than girls do and they depend on themselves more when they are solving problems.

Boys, too. seem to be less hemmed in by conventional thinking both in real life and in test situations. A child must not be afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing if he is going to be able to create when he is working with ideas. Boys seem to have less fear about this than girls. We believe this is because girls, as they are brought up in our society, are expected to conform more, to follow rather than lead, to be co-operative rather than competitive.

Another reason girls improve less in these tests than boys is that our society expects boys to be smarter than girls, particularly in things like science and mathematics. Furthermore. in test makers' attempts to avoid the criticism of an overemphasis on verbal ability in tests, they have perhaps overemphasized knowledge of math and interest to boys. Also, it is sometimes considered unfeminine to be too smart. For instance, when an eleven-year-old girl is asked to solve a difficult arithmetic problem, she may be afraid to be the only one in the class to answer it.

She may not even try to solve it, telling herself that arithmetic is of no interest to her, that i is a boys' skill anyway. We should encourage boh our girls and our boys to make maximum use of their intelligence. And we should to create a climate for intellectual growth at home as well as in school.
