Achievement Quotient

The achievement quotient (AQ) is a academic measurement tool that is meant to measure a student's academic achievement level. Similar to the calculation of an IQ score, AQ is calculated by dividing the academic achievement level (what level or grade they're scoring at) by the student's actual placement level (what grade/age they actually are) and then multiplied by 100. For instance, a 10th grader that tests at a 12 grade academic level would score 120. This type of scoring has been generally superseded by more scientific methods of measuring general intelligence.
