How mental age is derivedEdit
After taking a standardized test, an individual's mental age is divided by his chronological age and multiplied by 100, yielding an intelligence quotient (IQ). Thus, a subject whose mental and chronological ages are identical has an IQ of 100, or average intelligence.
Louis Leon Thurstone was among prominent critics, stating "the mental age concept is a failure in that it leads to ambiguities and inconsistencies."
