# I'm looking for a test to tell me how smart this dumb kid is.

Don't tell me how IQ tests are a waste of time and how IQ doesn't really measure potential. I know all that. My buddy's kid just asked me to find an IQ test for him, he's 12. He's a smart kid but he's a smart A. Do any of you know of a good, free, online test that a twelve year old can take?

Not a good idea ... giving some naive kid online tests that will either inflate his notion of how smart he is - most often the case , that's how they get you to buy the diagnostic results - or convince him that he is an idiot. The online IQ tests , despite seeming " culture fair " and simplistic for the adults poses unfamiliar concepts to younger kids. The IQ test that is administered needs to have a more progressive approach - something that takes several days to administer and measures more and more facets of intelligence. It's healthier this way ...

This one will take about 40 minutes.

Tell him it's not a full IQ test, just a fluid intelligence test.

Tell him that all the smart kids find their own tests. Strange he didn't know that....
