In case of duplicate questions the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Eric Spink 8, Edmonton, Alberta Nowadays, when young people are being given so many different" kinds of tests in schools, there is a great deal of interest in knowing just what these tests prove. One of the oldest and best- known forms of tests is to determine a child's I.Q. This is an abbreviation for Intelligence Quotient, and is a measure of a person's "mental age." Just as one boy of 10 may be taller than another boy, so one boy's mental development may be greater than another boy's of the same age. People have been able to find out, after many tests, what problems and tasks children of a certain age can perform. For example, the average six-year old child can do certain problems and tasks, So if a child passes enough tests so that his average is that of a six year old, his mental age is said to be six years. Now if a six year old has a mental age of six years, his I.Q, is 100. But if a five year old has a mental age of six, his I.Q. is 120 (Mental age divided by the chronological age and then mul tiplied by 100), I.Q.'s between 90 and 100 are often called average; those above 110 are generally called superior, and those below 30 are below average. Does a high I-Q. mean a better brain than a low I.Q.? There is much argument and discussion about this. Low mental ability y be the result of injuries at Dirth, or glandular disorders, or even diseases wich have caused damage to the brain. Sometimes :he causes cannot even be determined. Some believe that in most cases fluid inherits his intelligence (which, mean* ft better brain). But others think that a child's intelli- gence is a result of the experienc; and the education he has had anc the kind of environment in whicl he has lived. Probably b o t h o these opinions are partially true It is now believed by many tha a child inherits a capacity f o; mental growth (brain power 01 development), but the degree to which his mental age develop within that capacity depends 01 many factors in his environment FUNTIME The Chuckle Bnx Mary: I took my dog to the Hen circus.
