Usefulness of IQ Tests

Opinions of developmental scientists and educators differ regarding the usefulness of IQ tests to benefit children’s lives or education. What is your position? If you see a continuing need for IQ tests, give an example of how they can be used. If you don’t see a continuing need, what would you do instead of giving IQ tests in typical situations where they are used (assessing the impact of prenatal or birth problems, assessing the impact of early environmental disadvantage, and placing a special needs child or a gifted child in the appropriate educational program)?
