The greatest topic of debate in the present era is intelligence. Many psychologists have to keep studying the changes in the intelligence patterns- including learned intelligence or inherited intelligence, universal or just limited to a specific zone, is the intelligence only in a single area or multiple.

The present situation labels students’ intelligence based on his/her IQ (Intelligence Quotient) level. Therefore, to calculate this IQ score with time more useful and reliable tests are coming that tell you about the level of Intelligence Quotient the student is having. Generally, most people tend to get the same average score even if they give the tests multiple times. Hence, some tests become a reliable source for the testing of the IQ level. 

IQ level testing in children is necessary because definitely, the one with a lower IQ level would require different and much more guidance than the one with a higher IQ level. And becomes helpful especially in the teaching process, telling you on whom to concentrate and whom not.

It has been discovered that IQ level and school performances are highly correlated. IQ is not limited to just the intellectual level but it also tells you about the behavioral traits, how a person would react in a certain situation. Also, if your child might be suffering from some disability then the IQ tests become even more important to determine the intelligence per the age. Especially for children facing problems like dyslexia, IQ tests become a great option.

Moreover, IQ tests help to understand the verbal and non-verbal abilities of a person, it also helps them understand how someone can manage with speed and memory processing.
