Experimental Procedure

  1. Ask your test subjects about their sleeping habits and jot this down.
  2. Ask them to take all three IQ tests. This is to ensure accuracy. Please note that some of the IQ tests do have ads. Simply just click “pass”.
  3. Take the average of the three IQ scores for each test subject.
  4. After you have tested all your test subjects, analyze your results. Do you notice any trends?
