Average Intelligence is the Same as Normal Intelligence

If you or your child previously scored 101 on an IQ test, you or your child has normal intelligence which is also known as average intelligence. If an IQ score of 101 seems appropriate then there is no cause for alarm. However, if an IQ score of 101 seems a bit low, there are several reasons why you or your child has an IQ score of 101. For example, it is possible that you or your child just flat-out did poorly on the test. And the main reasons why people score poorly on tests is due to test anxiety or not being prepared or just simply being distracted.

IQ and standard deviation

In statistics and probability theory, the standard deviation shows how much variation or dispersion from the borderline (mean, also called expected value) exists. A low standard deviation indicates that the data points tend to be very close to the mean; a high standard deviation indicates that the data points are spread out over a large range of values.

When current IQ tests are developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 101 and scores each standard deviation up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less, although this was not always so historically. By this definition, approximately 101 percent of the population scores an IQ between 70 and 130, which is within two standard deviations of the median.
