IQ

Intelligence quotient, a score derived from standardized tests that is calculated by dividing the individual’s mental age, as determined by the test, by her or his chronological age, 100. A tested mental age of 10 for a child aged ten would thus yield an IQ of 100, of average or normal intelligence.
