Testing provides us unusual access to understanding the highly complex cognitive abilities of gifted children and insight into ways to support their gifts. Of all the opportunities parents provide to support children's strengths and promote their interests, testing offers invaluable insight into the child's needs and a road map for the future, especially when a full analysis of score rankings and their implications are provided. A professional evaluation can verify cognitive strengths, assess academic achievement, and recommend specific strategies to meet a child's needs at school. It can document the need for advanced work and less drill and practice. Testers of the gifted can usually suggest resources, and may also be able to help with advocacy after testing, such as conferring with a teacher or principal about special provisions.
Tests are a crucial criterion future especially for the most highly sensitive gifted. Alpha Club offers only tests that have proven successful for years. Scored online test results will not be accepted, online tests only partially point out any talent or talents. The tests offered are only held with selected psychologists, school psychologists and / or experts in the field concerned .Only the following tests where successfully end the following IQ tests:
There are a number of conditions that if they are ignored it leads to intuitively incorrect results in IQ tests. For Example: Language IQ tests about presuppose that the person the language well controlled, in which the questions are presented: children of certain groups of foreign workers and immigrants often cut off badly.
Giftedness is a well above average intellectual ability of a person. In psychology this is defined differently by different models. In general, it is assumed that there is a general factor of intelligence ("g"). The construct 'giftedness' assumes that there are quantitative differences in their intellectual abilities between people and that it is also possible to classify people in terms of their intellectual abilities in different groups. As a highly gifted refers people whose test result of at least two standard deviations in a standardized intelligence test on the mean of all those tested; Gifted are therefore rare by definition. Since intelligence tests (due to different tasks) are not perfectly correlated, there may well be people who are gifted measured on an intelligence test and measured on a not others.

A more recent approach to determine a general factor of intelligence is the short memory. Thereafter, the intelligence depends on the speed of information processing and memory span. Source: Wikipedia
The use of intelligence tests in the selection of applicants, should always be supervised by a graduate psychologist, otherwise the process can be challenged
According to the promotion of intelligence and talent in the immediate vicinity of gifted intelligence test may have different results after some time. The Flynn effect is largely attributed to the improvement of environmental conditions, such. As education, nutrition, health care and mass media. Flynn) was based on test results from 14 industrial nations, that the increases in IQ scores 5-25 points per generation were. In other studies found Flynn that the increase in test scores occurred over time, especially in nonverbal, culturally reduced tests. More: The Flynn effect
Intelligence tests must be verified at regular intervals as the average measured intelligence changed over time. In 2012, the test results of women were - at least in some countries - for the first time just over the results of the men (IQ values from 100.5 to 101.5 in the Ravens Matrices.)
On the basis of IQ tests that have been carried out in the last century, published Richard Lynn and TatuVanhanen (2002) for the first time a worldwide compilation of IQ averages in many countries .
