|Apgar Scale. This scale was developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar in 1952. It is used to rate a newborn at 1 minute and 5
minutes old on muscle tone, respiration, color, reflex irritability, and heart rate. A score of 7 -- 10 means that things are just
fine. Between 4 and 6, the baby may need assistance with breathing. Below 4, the baby will need life-saving measures taken.
|IQ Scores & Ratings
What is a good IQ score? What is a high IQ score? What is a low IQ score? These are common questions, particularly after
someone finds out their score from an IQ test.
Lewis Terman (1916) developed the original notion of IQ and proposed this scale for classifying IQ scores:
Normal Distribution & IQ Scores
The properties of the normal distribution apply to IQ scores:
Low IQ & Intellectual Disability
5% of people have an IQ under 70 and this is generally considered as the benchmark for intellectual disability, a condition of
limited mental ability in that it produces difficulty in adapting to the demands of life.
Severity of intellectual disability can be broken into 4 levels:
High IQ & Genius IQ
Genius IQ is generally considered to begin around 140 to 145, representing ~.25% of the population (1 in 400). Here's a
More notes on High IQ and Genius IQ:
Einstein was considered to "only" have an IQ of about 160.
Mensa is a society for people with high IQ, in the top 2% (1 in 50).
In 1926, psychologist Catherine Morris Cox published a study "of the most eminent men and women" who had lived between
1450 and 1850 to estimate what their IQs might have been.

"On Old Olympic Towering Tops A Finn and German Viewed Some Hops"
Another: "Oh Once One Takes The Anatomy Final Very Good Vacations Are Heavenly"
(note this mnemonic uses "Vestibulocochlear" for cranial nerve 8 -- Acoustic AND "Accessory" for cranial nerve 11 -- Spinal
