Q: What are the PRO's of IQ Testing?
- predict short-term school performance
- assess individuals strengths & weaknesses
- Predict occupational achievement
-Reveal important personality variables
-allow us to trace possible changes in an individual/population

Internal - FSIQ-.97
Test-retest: .89
Q: Cons of IQ testing?
-IQ scores don't measure innate, fixed ability, and their use in classifying minority groups has been questioned
-there has been an overemph on understanding end product of cog functioning & neglect in appreciating underlying cog processes
- limited in predicting certain apsects of occu success and non academic skills
