As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Post-high school options/college and iq test scores

    Can someone with an official overall IQ test score in the range of 87-94 graduate university successfully? If so, at what level (Associate's, Bachelor's, post-Bachelor's, Master's)?

    I realise the answer to this question probably also depends on several other factors, but I would like a general idea.

    IQ is an arbitrary number. None of the stupid teasers on the internet are an accurate measure of IQ.

    I have an M.ed in education. I've had students who were difficult to teach with a normal IQ (at around 100) and students with lower IQ's that soar due to their motivation and determination. The Armed Forces use the ASVAB test. While it is not a formal IQ test, it's a good indicator of a persons skills and areas for improvement.

    WHAT KIND OF QUESTIONS WILL I BE ASKED ON THE ASVAB?

    The ASVAB tests cover general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, numerical operations, coding speed, auto and shop information, mathematics knowledge, mechanical comprehension and electronics information.

      Thank you for your reply.

      I understand that IQ is to an extent a random number. I am referring to an IQ test score from an IQ test that was given by a professional, which is why I said "official IQ test score".

      I am aware that an IQ test score between 85 to 115 is considered to be in the average range. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQ_classification

      I am asking this question for myself.

        There are too many 'official' IQ tests to provide an accurate answer. Every test has biases related to culture, environmental conditions, etc. Educational experiences matter. I taught 3rd graders to solve algebraic equations.

        I don't know what your IQ is, but it doesn't matter. It's possible to raise your IQ by quite a bit. I had a deficit in spatial learning. I had to study hard and take a few geometry courses. But it worked.

        I would generally concur with 85-105 is an average range. All of the tests I'm familiar with classify IQ's at 110 for above average IQ. I have a cousin who has a Mensa IQ. It is my opinion that he is arrogant, mean spirited person whose sole goal is to destroy religion in all of its forms. Many very smart IQ persons are in prison.

        Graduate courses are courses in addition to your general college degree. A Bachelors degree.

        I recommend a community college beginning. It's much cheaper than a 4 year university and it's possible to transfer all the credits you have to a university. Most community colleges have career counselors and guide you through taking the basics in college level reading, math, history, writing, science. When you finish this and get your associates degree, you'll know what you feel capable of mastering for your future. Check your state for scholarships, or VA help if you have served in the military.

        Prayers for you.

          Thank you for the prayers and advice.

          ​Just to clarify, I am referring to the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale.​​​​​​

          I will pray for you too, and pray that God will use you to shine the light of the Lord Jesus Christ to others for His glory and for the good of others.
