Adaptive intelligence-testing in talent identification

Kristof Kovacs

Cognitive ability tests are often used in the identification phase of talent nurturing programs. However, the use of paper and pencil tests are not always possible in large-projects, because of the large number of applicants on the one hand and the single answer key on the other. Adaptive IQ-testing can be optimally used with a very large sample and the safety of the answer key is not an issue, since there is no single list of items. As part of the ongoing udentification phase of the Hungarian Templeton Program approximately 15 000 studente have filled the online, adaptive IQ-test created by Dr. Kristof Kovacs in collaboration with Mensa HungarIQa. At the end of the identification phase the results will be analyzed and program will be evaluated.
