Iq test accuracy when there's more than 1 logical answer to a question?

  1. Aug 4, 2007 #1
    How can iq tests be accurate if people can come up with multiple logical answers to a single question?

    This is the main flaw of poorly designed IQ tests. Good ones should always have some sort of hints to rule all but one possibility.

    That's easy. Have you read much in the way of test-taking tutorials? What do they say (and what do test designers use) about questions with multiple right answers? I mean, welcome to the PF, but the answer to your question is pretty obvious.
