Stanford-Binet Sample Question #1 — Visual-Spatial Processing:
Parent, say to your child: “What is silly or impossible about this picture?”
Stanford-Binet Sample Question #2 — Vocabulary:
Parent, say to your child: “What is this called?” (Be sure to point to the image when asking this question.)
Stanford-Binet Sample Question #3 — Knowledge:
Parent, say to your child: “Why would you use a scale?”
1 Point Answer: To weigh something
2 Point Answer: To weigh yourself and see if you’ve gained or lost weight. At the grocery store, you’d use a scale to weigh fruits or vegetables. These are sold by the pound so the weight tells you what they cost.
Stanford-Binet Sample Question #4 — Procedural Knowledge:
These subtest questions will ask your child to demonstrate how to properly use something children their age generally know what to do with by using gestures and pantomime. Parent, say this to your child: “Can you act out what to do with this?”
Stanford-Binet Sample Question #5 — Visual Arithmetic and Quantitative Reasoning:
Parent, say to your child: “How many blocks will I have left if I take two blocks away?”
