In this study, brief information is given about the intelligence scales used in Turkey. Psychological tests are used in clinical practice in the measurement of individual qualities such as development, personality and intelligence, and in practical needs such as diagnosis and evaluation. In recent years, the need for individuals has become widespread to learn about the intelligence of themselves, their relatives and especially their children’s development of intelligence. Considering that most of the diverse intelligence tests used in our country are of foreign origin, we observed that there are various problems in adapting them to the Turkish society.
