Intelligence Group Intelligence Tests Individual intelligence tests can be given only by specially trained psychologists. Such tests are expensive and time-consuming to administer, and so educational institutions often use tests that can be given to a group of people at the same time. Commonly used group intelligence tests include the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test and the Lorge-Thorndike Intelligence Test. Biological Tests of Intelligence Some researchers have suggested that biological indices such as reaction time and perceptual speed relate to intelligence as measured by IQ tests: Reaction time: the amount of time a subject takes to respond to a stimulus, such as by pushing a button when a light is presented. Perceptual speed: the amount of time a person takes to accurately perceive and discriminate between stimuli. For example, a test of perceptual speed might require a person to determine which of two lines is shorter when pairs of lines flash very briefly on a screen.
