  6. 6. The origins of the IQ test<br />In 1904, Alfred Binet was asked by the French government to create a mechanism for identifying students in need of alternative education. <br />Binet created a scale of 30 tasks for 6 – 14 year olds, ranging from easy to complex ones.<br />He was forthright about the limitations of his scale, stressing that intellectual development progressed at variable rates and was heavily influenced by nurture. <br />Binet clearly stated that the IQ scale reflected intelligence that is malleable rather than fixed.<br />
  7. 7. The misuse of IQ<br />In 1908, H.H. Goddard, translated Binet’s scale into English. However, as a champion of the eugenics movement, he changed the focus of the scale to suit his own beliefs.<br />Lewis Terman then took the scale, standardized it using a large US sample, and from that created the first Stanford-Binet scale – the basis for the modern IQ test. <br />With it was published the following objective: "curtailing the reproduction of feeble-mindedness and in the elimination of an enormous amount of crime, pauperism, and industrial inefficiency” (Terman, Lyman, et al, 1916)<br />
