#584 The Dark Side of the IQ Test

Early attempts to measure intelligence through testing began with Francis Galton, cousin of Charles Darwin. His experiments were considered a failure, but it led to other psychological tests that have been administered typically to 12-year old students. These IQ tests have had a spotty history and in their worst case use led to eugenics, and in normal use limited opportunities for students to receive advanced training. Doug and Rich explain the Christian view of this and propose an alternative based upon scripture.
