The Gilliland Inner City Learning Potential Examination is an intelligence or scholastic aptitude test that results in a IQ score. The test involves no reading, and may be used from age 6 and up, but is intended for use with inner city students. Subtests 2-5 should be administered to all examinees, but subtest 6, "Picture Completion" may be omitted with primary children. Tests 1, 3b, and 7 do not contribute to the IQ score but yield additional information about the child. Test 1, "Visual Memory", helps identify learning disabilities. Test 7, "Interests", gives background information that can be used to guide reading choices. Test 3b, "Symbol Interpretation" has implications for reading and is appropriate only for examinees above the 3rd grade level in reading and writing. Norms for the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades were available at the time of publication, and discounts on the price of the test were offered to any teacher who would forward information on the performance of her class on the test for the purpose of increasing the norm sample. Scores on the test are computed by the test administrator, and no information about reliability and validity is included in the documentation. Other versions of the test have been developed for use with Rural Western and American Indian populations.
