Are there separate IQ tests for different age groups?
Yes there are separate IQ tests for different age groups. Very young children will be given a different I.Q. test than a child of school age, the younger the child the less reliable the I.Q. test.
Once entering adulthood (16+) another test will be used.
The scores one gets on a test are not directly comparable to people of a different age, for example: If a 16 year old got an I.Q. test score of 110, and a 25 year old also scored 110, this does not mean they scored equally on the test.
If the 25 year old were to have answered all questions exactly as the 16 year old did, they would have gotten a much lower score than the 16 year old. This is because, even in the same test, people are compared to others of the same age group, not all takers of the test.
The mostly commonly used tests for school aged children is the WISC (Wechsler Intelligence scale for children) and for adults it is the WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale).
There are individually administered tests and there are group administered tests. There are full battery tests, abbreviated tests, and single-ability tests. There are verbal batteries and nonverbal batteries. There are English-language editions and foreign language (usually Spanish) editions. There are adult tests and tests for children (typically age 6-16), as well as tests for young children and those for infants.
it is simple. the grouped frqency table allows you to analyze, organize and distibute your data in a very easy way. the GFT also allows you to enter groups. Ex: different age groups (50-60), (60-70) etc... in conclusion this helps you and your data. as for the normal frequency table, you cannot use age groups and it is not that organised
There's two factors you should look at first: your age and the country you live in (different countries accept different age groups) _________________________________________ e.i. : In Canada, you can apply when you're 14* In the US, the age is 16* (could be 15 and a few months too I believe) *(and have volunteer experience)
What term describes the number of a population that are of reproductive age as well as those above and below reproductive age?
In a psychological study? Cross section is a test performed by different people of different ages, which can be problematic because of generational bias. A longitudinal study tests people of a certain age over a long period of time, it tests them periodically, at different ages in life... which could be more accurate depending on the test.
