IQ tests across different population norms

Postby ziminia » Sun Mar 10, 2019 1:45 pm

If a person takes an IQ test normed on the population of Chile (average IQ: 90) and then the same person takes another IQ test normed on the population of Hong Kong (average IQ: 108), will his scores differ?

Yes, the person will achieve different scores. The norming of the test will make the 90 IQ test easier than the test normed at 108.

In large part yes. The tests are often misused.

A good book on the subject is “The mismeaure of man.”
