The IQ test is one of the most popular psychological tests, but many people aren't sure what IQ scores mean.An
IQ score below 70 is a low result.The average score is set to 100 and any score over 140 is counted as a high IQ.
The first practical IQ test was developed in France between 1905 - 1908 by Alfred Binet.
Binet used the test to see which schoolboys would need particular help with the school curriculum.
Stanford University psychologist Lewis Terman took Binet's original test and standardized it using a
sample of American partakers.This adapted test was called the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale.
