Stanford-Binet IQ test

The modern field of intelligence testing began with the Stanford-Binet IQ test.

It is worth noting that Alfred Binet, who created the IQ test in 1904, was aiming to identify students who could benefit from extra help in school: his assumption was that lower IQ indicated the need for more teaching, not an inability to learn.

There have been five versions of the test.

Students with exceptional marks on this test may be deemed gifted, highly gifted, extremely gifted, or profoundly gifted.
