You just know your child is the smartest of them all, but never had a way of proving it? Now there is a way, the “IQ test for children – Draw a Man test”.
Back in 1926, Florence Goodenough introduced the Draw a Man test, detailed in her book “Measurement of Intelligence by Drawings”. Based on Goodenough’s work our programming group developed the “IQ test for children – Draw a Man test”.
The child is asked to draw a person, taking all the time (s)he needs. Most of the children don’t take more than 10-15 minutes to complete their drawing. The child should be encouraged to start drawing and to remain focused, without any pressure or other kind of guidance.
When the painting is complete start the evaluation answering a set of standard questions regarding shape, proportions and other details to describe the picture. Just press on the appropriate text boxes to make your selections and press again to deselect. Use the “Back” and “Next” clouds to go back and forth.
Keep in mind that above anything else the results have to do with your child’s ability to focus and the drawing experience gained so far. Don’t be disappointed, try again another day when (s)he is more focused and it’s very possible that the results will amaze you.
The “IQ test for children – Draw a Man test” is appropriate for the evaluation of children aged 3 to 13 years.

This is not a drawing app but rather a scoring app better suited for therapists. You have the child draw a picture on paper then use the app to score the drawing by selecting criteria of what the child included in their drawing? Once the criteria is selected and the child's birthdate is entered and a chronological age is produced. Actually a very useful app for evaluations for psychologists, psychiatrists, and occupational therapists. Highly recommend to those who use drawing a person as part of an evaluation to gauge the developmental age of a child. Makes scoring extremely easier than using a list of criteria.
In principal, this should work as a scoring app for a picture drawn outside of the app. However, it even fails at that function because it for that, as the various option lists force you to select irrelevant answers in order to proceed. In other words, there are no options available for “not applicable”, and without selecting an answer you can’t continue to the next set of options to complete the test. I’d give this zero stars if I could, it’s a waste of money
Don’t do it
I didn’t read the reviews, but I should have. As previously stated, you HAVE to pick an answer.. even if it doesn’t apply- so it’s adding points where points aren’t earned. Awful. Only $1, but annoyed I wasted even that much.
