Verbal tests of intelligence.
- Verbal tests of intelligence use language (words or numbers) for measuring intelligence. In these tests, subjects are required to respond verbally to test items.
- E.g. Army Alpha Test, Wechsler’s Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS).
- Verbal tests are useful to measure higher mental abilities. These tests are also useful to differentiate between people having average intelligence and those having above-average intelligence.
- Verbal tests cannot be given to people having different linguistic backgrounds, illiterate people, and small children. Further, these tests are culture-bound and so, cannot be used in different cultures.
