Further IQ Testing

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D


Q: We just received our sons 2nd grade Terra Nova test results and he has a perfect 99% in every single subject. Should we consider additional testing, special assignments, ...?

A response would be very much appreciated.

A: Further testing can be done depending on the need for further testing. If you would like your son to get into a Gifted and Talented (G&T) program, it may require a different type of testing (a standardised IQ test) or perhaps a combination of assessments.

The Terra Nova tests compare students with others in their grades around the nation. Hence, the scores are listed in percentiles. It also includes a component that acts like an IQ test (the InView portion). Therefore, this is a part of the Terra Nova test rather than a separate indicator. This component measures the students' ability to use information and apply it to new and different situations. It also gauges how a student analyses and employs higher-level thinking skills (includes verbal reasoning, sequences, analogies and quantitative reasoning). In short, it measures cognitive abilities that relate to a student's ability to learn and succeed in school. The tests are designed to work together to measure student achievement.

Depending on the requirements of the school, an individualised or group IQ test may be suggested. It would be best that you speak to someone in authority in his school before deciding on any kind of testing. Good luck!
