Research conducted by Dr. Stefan C. Dombrowski of Rider University’s school psychology program delves into the complicated history behind the IQ test to challenge its approach to interpreting intelligence.
Do IQ tests accurately measure intelligence? The TED-Ed video “The Dark History of IQ Tests,” created based on research conducted by Dr. Stefan Dombrowski, professor and director of the school psychology program at Rider, investigates the problematic use of the tests throughout history to question whether a person's intelligence can be measured in a single numerical score.
This educational resource relates to Dr. Dombrowski’s award-winning article on IQ test interpretation and to the entirety of his research, which focuses on evidence-based IQ test interpretation. In addition to leading Rider’s school psychology program, which is one of only seven such programs in New Jersey with full accreditation by National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), Dr. Dombrowski has published over 110 articles/chapters and five books on issues in children’s development and evidence-based psychological assessment.
