What's New in Version 4.5
This app helps you become more familiar with the thinking patterns used to answer most IQ questions on official tests. It serves as a great aid in improving your puzzle solving skills.
I am not sure if the scoring system is accurate or not, because I scored an unusually high score of 152. I've realized the timer is irrelevant in your final score because I answered 38/50 questions correctly and so did my friend. The thing is, both of us took completely different time periods to finish the test yet scored the same score of 152. Clearly, time is not a factor that contributes to your final score meaning the timer is pointless. This also led to the conclusion that for each question you get correct, 4 points is added to your final score. Think about it- I got 38 questions correct and 38 x 4=152.
IQ tests are based off how intelligent you are compared to everyone else. A score of 152 would make me 1 in 2,000 according to random sources on google. I do not believe I am that intelligent. If this test were accurate, then the mean of most test takers should be 100. Based off of my leaderboard position, the score of 152 set me in the 11th percentile. The significance of that means I scored higher than 89% of other users, meaning 11% scored higher than me. If that's case, I do not fit the "genius" definition as only the top .3% of the population are geniuses. This would set my legitamate score as ~119.
The scores are definitely inflated- and that is a issue.
Multiple valid answers for some questions
Whoever wrote these questions didn't run them by enough people. In the first 50 questions, I found a few that have multiple valid answers. For instance, one such question was "Sun : Planet :: Earth : ?" and both Moon and Satellite were options. Now, the moon is a satellite technically, and so the precision of language is off. It's a little annoying to have to assume that the test is made for people who don't know the actual definition of "satellite." Another one was "99 : 98 :: 198 : ?" and both 197 and 196 were listed. The test maker says it's the obvious answer (197), not recognizing that 198 is just twice 99 and 196 is twice 98, so 196 is the answer if you're thinking in terms of proportions (as opposed to the simple linguistic connection of "minus 1"). What I mean is proportionally/multiplicatively, 99:98=198:196. With at least two such questions out of just the first 50, it's obvious to me that the test makers didn't vet their questions. And anyway the questions generally seem to be too easy, at least the first 50.
The overall concept and layout of breaking intelligence out into cleanly, identifiable sectors is brilliant. With that being said, grammar and context conveyed in the Visualization test (a purchasable add-on) is sloppy and careless. Define the variation between mirror imaging and water imaging to the user. It appears that questions were worded by someone having knowledge of English as a second language and may have missed (or neglected to add) certain nuances. Programming and ease of use is fluid...not bad. Most importantly, at the end of the test, I'm not connected to rankings or any other meaningful analytics. People don't want to pay to take a test and hear they got a certain percentage correct without seeing the relationship between that and a metric that ranks them against their peers. Don't lost sight of the app's proposition offering as a whole.
