Educational quotient

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An educational quotient, or EQ, is a score designed to assess a subject's level of general education. Though related to intelligence quotient, there is no direct correlation between the two.[1] A person of high IQ, may have a low EQ, and vice-versa. A person's EQ is generally found by dividing the results of their Wide Range Achievement Test by their IQ and multiplying by 100,[2][3] or by dividing their Education Age by their Chronological Age and multiplying by 100.[4][5]
