5 Free IQ Tests for Children and Students

Clever kidWhether you're a student, a parent or a teacher, a free IQ test for kids offers an effective way to test the cognitive abilities of any child. While IQ tests are not usually considered the most accurate measure of intelligence, they do provide much needed insight into which children need additional support as they work through the learning process.

There are many types of intelligence tests that psychologists and other experts use to gauge the intellectual capacity of an individual child, but the most common ones used are WISC-IV, WAIS-III, and KBIT DAS.

It's important to understand that IQ tests offer a measure of a child's intellectual ability, not their learning achievement. Valid IQ tests typically involve shapes, colors and other simple elements that need to be manipulated in some way. Any test that involves math, reading or writing questions is not an IQ test, but an achievement test.

Free IQ test for kids are not easy to find online because the authentic tests are offered by an administrator who understands how to gauge and measure the answers provided by the child. While some tests are fully written, other IQ tests are both written and verbal, with the test administrator monitoring responses and analyzing results. However, there are a few good free IQ tests for kids that can help provide an estimate as to the IQ score a particular child may receive in an official test. But most importantly, the site includes a PhD Certified "Kids IQ Test."

Fun Education has a whole mix of great tests & quizzes, not only for children, but for everyone. Some examples include a Personality Test, a Spatial IQ Test and even a Smarter Than a 5th Grader test.

The test was designed by Dr. William A. McConochie, Ph.D, and includes about 200 multiple choice questions that gauge the IQ level of children aged 6 to 16. The test measures the child's ability to gauge similarities between items, process information, comprehend information and more. While you can read through all of the quiz questions for free, to receive the results of the online test, there is a $19.97 service fee.

Free Verbal Reasoning Test


The test takes the child through 25 questions, with various questions involving verbal comprehension and logic. Verbal reasoning is a significant part of how many psychologists believe that intelligence can be tested, so the results of this particular test could offer some insight into a child's potential IQ.

Most children face whole series of achievement tests during their school years. However, most experts agree that the true measure of intelligence is not primarily from achievement tests, but from test of logic, comprehension and the ability to turn complicated and obscure information into clear and understandable solutions. IQ tests offer educators and parents with an important method they can use to truly gauge the intellectual capacity of a child.

IQ tests are fun, I took one and got 118, then another a few days later and got a 120. I'm a dyslexic and all the tests I took are forgen to me, I'm not American or Engelish. I' only just turned 14. I was wondering, and It will be acward if I'm wrong... Is the answer to the boat question that the green ship is then next to the red ship?

I think that you guys should actually have actual IQ tests. Not just make them "special for kids". So, I'm not trying to be rude, but I think that it shouldn't be like an online tutoring thing. It should really be more like, an actual "quiz".
