Abstract

This double-blind study utilized 60 participants placed into one of three equally distributed categories according to their composite ACT/SAT scores. Comparisons of the Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales (RIAS) with internet IQ tests from tickle.com, queendom.com, and iqtest.com showed low to modest correlations, questioning the overall validity of web IQ tests.
