Intended Use: The ISIQ - Children’s Version is intended as a test that parents of young children and teenagers can use over the Internet for measuring spatial intelligence. Scores obtained can help persons with self-awareness, self-understanding and making plans for schooling and/or career choices. Reports can be used by professionals as well, as in assessing for career planning, school placement and problem diagnosis. For example, when diagnosing ADHD, learning disabilities and dyslexia, it is important to rule out mental retardation.

Description and Design: The Spatial ISIQ – Children’s Version is a 208-item multiple choice measure of spatial intelligence designed for children ages 6 to 16. The test items were written by Dr. William A. McConochie, Ph.D., to measure a range of ability from a mentally slow 6 year old to a bright 16 year old.

Test content was written by the author in five categories: everyday physics, worldly knowledge, patterns and shapes, directions, and common hand tools. Some items were taken from another spatial intelligence measure previously developed by the author. An effort was made to keep item content fair to both genders, and, to maximize aptitude rather than achievement, independent of formal learning experiences. Approximately 42 items were written for each section, ranging in estimated difficulty from very easy for a six year old to difficult for a bright young adult.

A multiple-choice format was chosen to permit Internet administration and automatic, computer scoring. Each item has 5 options, four that are possible answers and one for “I don’t know”. There is only one correct answer for each item. When a child misses 5 items in a row, that section of the test is discontinued and the next begun. Test-takers are urged to be serious and complete the entire test carefully. Young children should be guided by an adult to assure reliable and valid scores.

Scores do not vary substantially by gender, ethnic group or nationality, suggesting that the test is relatively culture-free and free of ethnic bias for English-speaking children with access to the Internet. Take Test

Report Format: After payment of the test administration fee you will receive immediate access to a written report and certificate of intelligence quotient that can be printed for personal use. Scores are given in terms of both I.Q. and percentile levels for all five sections and the total score. I.Q. scores are calculated by the standard deviation formula with a mean I.Q. set at 100 and standard deviation of 15. The printed report provides a description of verbal intelligence, reliability data and recommended interpretation of scores.

Norms: The test norms are periodically updated and are currently based on a sample of over 2,000 children from around the world. As there are no substantial differences in scores by gender, scores are based on comparison of the test taker's scores with those of other children the same age.

Value: Determining if a child is gifted or has special needs can give parents a valuable insight into their child's emotional, academic and social development – this children’s IQ test can be immensely helpful in determining if your child has special needs or is eligible for higher placement in school. Research has shown that one of the first steps to raising a gifted child is to have him or her take an IQ test along with other forms of testing to determine his or her strengths, weaknesses and abilities. In today's crowded educational environment, parents cannot rely solely on their child's school to determine if their child is gifted or would benefit from being placed in a special academic environment. Parents should take the initiative as early as possible by having their children   take an intelligence test.

In many school districts, the best way for a child to get a quality education is to be admitted into the gifted classes or attend a special magnet school. Unfortunately, these programs often have limited enrollments so countless parents compete for a few, coveted spots. Further, parents who are looking to get their children into these programs often need to provide proof that their child belongs in a special or gifted program.

For years IQ testing was often an expensive and time-consuming process affordable by only the wealthiest of parents. The process needed to be administered by a licensed and trained child psychologist who charges anywhere from $200 to $400 for a basic assessment. This is no longer the case. The   ISIQ – Children’s Version is a valid and accurate assessment of a child's intelligence quotient and just as accurate as the Wechsler IQ tests for children. Join the other parents from around the world who use the ISIQ – Children's Version to quickly and affordably determine their child's level of intelligence.
