Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon (French scientists) devised a new way to test intelligence called the Binet-Simon Scale in 1909. Alfred Binet was commissioned by French gov. to separate children into vocational vs academic schooling This intelligence test measured someones intelligence using the performance method, which involved testing intelligence based upon someones ability to give correct answers to a series of questions.


help compare intelligence between different types of people, the Binet-Simon Scale used a measure called mental age. For example, if on average a group of nine year olds score twenty correct questions, and then a child who is seven years old scores the same amount, then that seven year old child is said to have a mental age of nine. In general, mental age should rise as a person grows older. So the older they are, the better they will do on the test. Between 2- 23 years of age.
