Stanford-Binet intelligence scale

Pronunciation: stan′fŏrd bē-nā′

Definition: a standardized test, an elaboration of the Binet-Simon scale, for the measurement of intelligence consisting of a series of questions, graded according to the intelligence of normal children at different ages, the answers to which indicate the mental age of the person tested; primarily used with children. It also has norms for adults standardized against adult age levels rather than, as formerly, those of children.
