Bio Statement

An IQ test is a test supposedly designed to determine an individual's intelligence. IQ tests are standardized tests, which mean they are administered in the exact same method to different individuals. In the United States, the usage of IQ tests as a basis of work is prohibited by a United States Supreme Court choice, Griggs v. Duke Power Co., unless the employer can connect the IQ test to an individual's task performance based upon a job analysis. (A task analysis describes and tapes the skills and other requirements essential to perform a specific task; therefore, in order for an IQ test to be allowed as a condition of work, the employer needs to show that the task performance requires some minimal level of working that can be determined through the IQ test.).
