What is IQ Power?
IQ Power is not just a computer program. It is a measure of intellectual power or raw processing capability that excludes contamination of results caused by existing knowledge of problem solving. For more see: The concepts behind the development of IQ Power.
The basis for testing intellectual power is the ability to assess the number and depth of nested problems the examinee can cope with simultaneously. Binary logic, is an ideal basis for developing nested problems but has some inherent accuracy problems in terms of random scores and a lack of variation at lower testing levels (no low end precision). By developing and introducing ternary logic to IQ POWER, we can improved accuracy in the face of some examinee's guesses, and enhanced the precision of some of the low end scores.
Ternary logic introduces some new operators and functions, but much of it is still based around biased, exclusive, and negative operator families and the implied patterns therein. Features of this system relate to intellectual power testing as follows:
- Abundant functions test the examinee's willingness to double-check when uncertain; without breaking focus on a multifaceted problem.
- Order of Operations imposes an operational framework in which the problems may be solved.
- Nesting provides the basis for testing the depth of the examinee's ability to process in parallel
- Local context, both secondary and primary, is used to test the ability to deviate from traditional context sources in above average examinees, when said sources provide insufficient information to resolve ambiguity.
- Semi-normalised scoring to give a more meaningful if not, familiar range of scores.
The best feature of IQ Power is that it takes the assumptions out of intelligence testing.
