We have but one approach to measuring intelligence in children. To us competence in the academic arena, in the form of good marks and grades, and above all, good positions signifies intelligence. This approach is outdated. After all, this is human intelligence we are talking about, which is far more diverse than what academic criteria, or an IQ test, can encompass.
