What is the Ruf Estimates™ Kids IQ Test?
- It is an online survey, filled out by parents, based on early behavioral milestones and interests.
- It provides an estimate of the child’s intellectual strengths and weaknesses, a specific estimate of the child’s IQ range and what this means, and detailed feedback and additional resources for this particular child.
- Feedback results are divided into 13 different estimated IQ and academic ability ranges that progress from [this child is] Average for his or her age group through bright, moderately gifted and the highest Levels that are described by Ruf’s 5 Levels of Gifted article.
- It is appropriate for any child six years and older whose parents have kept good records or have good memories for their child’s early milestones. In the case of children who are clearly exceptionally intellectually advanced, parents can complete the survey for a child as young as age three.
